Great experience with both of my children. My daughter graduated in May 2013. She raised her G.P.A., scored well on her ACT, and was accepted into the University of Miami. My son just graduated May 2014 and is starting Miami Dade College in Fall of 2014. I greatly appreciate the personalized attention received; the teachers spend one on one time with the students and the counselors actually help with college applications, financial aid, and so forth.

My son dropped out of High School his senior year causing my husband and I great grief. My son s Psychologist suggested we enroll him in American High School Academy s Adult High School Completion Program so we did. He told us lots of her patients have attended this school and obtained great results. At American High School Academy the counselor offered us two programs for high school completion a home based & a classroom based program. We elected the classroom based program for my son knowing he needs a structured environment. He graduated in February 2012, we re very happy with the results and my son became very motivated after obtaining his High School Diploma. He went on to take the ACT test and once he obtained his test results we promptly made an appointment to meet with the counselor at American High School Academy. The Counselor helped us register my son into FIU and apply for financial aid. He is now a proud graduate of American High School Academy and student at FIU. Thank you American High School Academy!

My daughter was a couple of credits shy from graduating from high school the school wanted her to attend night school but that was not an option. I was recommended American High School Academy located at: 10300 SW 72 ST # 427 Miami, Florida 33173 by the school counselor at Coral Gables Sr. High School. At American High School Academy she was able to get back on track and graduate on time. She is now attending Broward College and is very happy. I would recommend American High School Academy to anyone needing help the teachers and counselors are extremely helpful and they even help you register for college.

I WAS ATTENDING BROWN MACKIE COLLEGE WITH MY AHSA DIPLOMA FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS IN THE YEAR OF 2011, IN AUG OF 2011 I WAS NOT ABLE TO CONTINUE MY EDUCATION AT BROWN MACKIE COLLEGE BECAUSE THEY TOLD ME THAT AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL ACADEMY LOCATED AT 10300 SW 72 ST #427 MIAMI, FLORIDA 33173 IS NO LONGER AN ACCREDITED SCHOOL!!!! AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS OF TRYING TO ENROLL IN OTHER COLLEGES AND TRADE SCHOOLS I WAS NOT ABLE TO DO SO BECAUSE NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE WILL ACCEPT THIS HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, ONLY MIAMI DADE COLLEGE WHICH WILL ACCEPT JUST ABOUT ANYTHING NOWADAYS! I HAVE REPORTED THE SCHOOL TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION BECAUSE THEY ARE USING THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION INFORMATION ON THEIR AHSA WEBSITE STATING THAT THEY ARE RECOGNIZED BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, WHICH IS NOT TRUE BY THE WAY!!! THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION STATED TO ME THAT AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL ACADEMY IS GIVING YOU FALSE INFORMATION, BECAUSE WE DO NOT RECOGNIZE ANY HIGH SCHOOL, WE ONLY FOCUS ON COLLEGES THEY ARE HOWEVER REGISTERED WITH THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION BUT THEY ARE NOT RECOGNIZED BY EITHER THE STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION OR THE US DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.

I was in my senior year at Braddock Senior High and I had some credits missing. My counselor told me i would have to take night school and summer school classes to get my diploma by August. This what not an option for me because I had a full time job. I decided I wanted to take charge and finish high school before my graduating class. I enrolled in the study at home program from American High School Academy. The material was very easy to complete and I ended up finishing in a months time. I graduated in December and by January I was enrolled at Miami Dade College. Thanks to Rey and all the team at American High School Academy. They really do try and help you any way possible. I highly recommend this program to any one not happy with the public school system.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
