The Importance of Attending a Fully Accredited School

American High School is fully Accredited by AdvancED (U.S. Dept of Education approved Accrediting Agency).

With so many schools to choose from, getting your education online may seem like a harrowing process. You may be concerned about the cost of tuition or the length of a degree program, but what if you completed your education only to learn that your degree is worthless?

Checking a school’s accreditation is the most important step to choosing the best online school for you. While there is no national Board of Education that accredits schools or universities, the U.S. Department of Education oversees all accrediting bodies and is a good place to look when checking a school’s credentials.

American High School is one of only a handful of schools in the US that hold the highest level of accreditation possible at the state, regional, national, and international level. Our degrees are approved and accepted both in the US and around the world. American High School is fully Accredited by AdvancED (U.S. Dept of Education approved Accrediting Agency).

American High School, a private school, delivers affordable, college preparatory, career-based online education for Grades 6-12 to students throughout the U.S. and Internationally. Students receive both core curriculum and career-based online courses in the areas of healthcare, game design, criminal justice, information technology, and office management.


AdvancED is the unified organization of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). AdvancED provides nationally recognized accreditation for school districts and individual schools and represents 27,000 public and private schools and districts across the United States and in 65 countries worldwide, educating 15 million students.



The Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA) was formed in 1994 by regional accrediting organizations in the United States following a long history of collaboration under other auspices. CITA provided systems of accreditation around the world for individual schools. It allowed schools in many different countries to be confident that they were using similar standards so that class credit could be transferred between them. In 2008, CITA was acquired by AdvancED, which continues its work.


The Council on Accreditation and School Improvement of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS-CASI) is a leading regional accreditation organization for the southern U.S., where American High School is based. SACS is one of the ‘Big 5’ regional accrediting organizations that are used by reputable colleges and universities in the U.S. These organizations also accredited middle schools and high schools. Regional accreditation by one of the ‘Big 5’ ensures that diplomas are universally accepted by employers, colleges, universities, the military, and so forth.
