Reimagining brilliance

Education in the new normal

During this unprecedented time, Main Street Scholars is reimagining education. 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.

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.

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.

We know you have questions

Ensuring your child’s success in the coming year is your top priority, and the many options for learning—online, in-person, a hybrid program, or homeschooling—are daunting. Please reach out and we’ll help you plot a course.

PORTRAIT OF A STUDENT | Perfect 36 on the ACT

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 3.2+, qualify for a Master’s in just two additional years.
