Our Accreditation

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, a private school, delivers affordable, college preparatory, career-based online education for Grades 9-12 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.



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 and it provided accreditation for individual schools. In 2008, CITA was acquired by AdvancED, which continues its work.



AdvancED is an private organization that accredits primary and secondary schools throughout the United States. The organization is based in Georgia. AdvanceED was formed in 2006 by the consolidation of the pre-college divisions of two of the U.S. regional accreditation organizations: the Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA CASI), and the Council on Accreditation and School Improvement of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS CASI).
