The American Academy Announces High School Diploma Program for Adults

SALT LAKE CITY – August 12, 2008 - The American Academy today announced a new online education program designed for adult students. The online high school offers courses through their School-as-a-Service™ online school platform.

The new courses offer examples that are relevant - the economy, gas prices, mortgages, insurance, politics and more - all written in a tone that respects adults' experiences. In addition, all of TAA's adult course instructors have experience in adult education, allowing them to better instruct and identify with adults.

"Traditional online high school courses were designed with high school-age students in mind; the content reflected that audience in both tone and context," said Rebekah Richards, senior vice president of academic affairs and principal of The American Academy. "Adult students bring a wealth of experience to the classroom. With our new program, adults can return to school knowing that they will be treated like adults. They'll have the opportunity to learn skills that are relevant to their lives while finishing their high school diploma with other students their age."

The American Academy is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission and serves students throughout the U.S. and in several countries. Every student has access to licensed instructors and to tutoring available on-demand, 24/7.

Enrollment is now open at The American Academy, and classes begin every Monday. For more information, please visit
