American High School Curriculum

American High School emphasizes the customization of our curriculum in order to meet the academic needs of our students. We believe it is more productive for the curriculum to "fit" the student rather than trying to make the student "fit" a curriculum.

We custom-design our curriculum for over 75% of our students. This is especially important for students that are new to our system and have been exposed entirely to institutional school curriculum and teaching methods. To properly design a curriculum for your student, it is necessary for us to have an understanding of the academic "level" your student has mastered in the core subjects.

To view our standard curriculum (that is, our non-customized curriculum), select the current grades level of your student or is nearest to completing. As you view our curriculum, please keep in mind that it is considered by many to be more robust than curriculum used by many schools today. We've designed it that way intentionally! Nevertheless, we believe the material we've selected from more than 45 excellent publishers is appropriate both for its degree of challenge and motivation to the student, and for the "grade level" it represents. We prefer to SET the standard, not just meet a standard.

American High School offers:

  • AP / Honors Courses
  • career-based online courses
  • Summer School Courses (available to students 9-12)
  • Transcript with credits completed at AHS will be sent to appropriate high school.
  • Dual Credit Courses (High school + College credit)

American High School is 100% "at your pace" online school:

  • Some students learn best when they study one course at a time
  • Some students learn best when they study all courses spread out over the course of a week
  • Can complete a grade level in a little at 4-6 months
