Main Street Scholars is reimagining education. The unprecedented events of 2020 taught us it’s no longer enough to think out of the box—there is no more box—and we need to teach students for their futures instead of adhering to the models of our past.
We are embracing flexibility and evolution as we meet students where they are—academically, emotionally, developmentally, and logistically—by customizing programs that provide a rigorous curriculum while allowing them to learn and develop at their own pace.
Building on a liberal arts framework, our goal is to prepare students to draw upon a multitude of resources, think critically, and reach sound conclusions as they navigate their schoolwork and the rapidly changing world beyond.
Through the support of Jamie and Main Street Scholars, we saw our daughter, who had disengaged with remote schooling during the pandemic, come back to life and enjoy learning again. MSS created an environment of advocacy and respect, so our daughter felt inspired and able to reach her full potential.
It is education at its finest. It was such a gift to see our daughter regain her confidence and look forward to going to school again. We cannot say enough great things about MSS. I only wish we had discovered them sooner. They are a gem in this community.
Marie, a student in our coaching center, applied to college Math, Data Science, and Actuarial programs. She was accepted at UCLA, UC Irvine, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Santa Cruz, and waitlisted at Purdue for the actuarial science track.
Because her goal is to obtain a degree in actuarial science, she accepted the offer to be a part of the actuarial program at UCSB. Having passed several APs, she is on track to graduate in 3 years and possibly, with a GPA of 4.2+, qualify for a Master’s in just two additional years.
