HOW DO I KNOW IF MY SCHOOL WILL APPROVE THE COURSE?
This is an important question and we recommend that you meet with a guidance counselor from your high school for pre-approval. Here are the steps you should take to ensure the online class will be accepted.
Although The American Academy is an accredited online high school, it is up to each individual school to approve and accept the online course.
- Visit our course catalog and find the class you are interested in taking.
- Download the course syllabus.
- Share the syllabus with your guidance counselor to get pre-approval on the course and to ensure they will accept the credits.
- Once you have approval, come back, purchase the course and start your class by the next business day!
