Main Street Scholars
Main Street Scholars: we build confidence in students. Our number one goal is to create an atmosphere that supports students until they can independently advocate for themselves. With expert teachers, coaches and a certified college counselor, the students we serve are given the opportunity to improve not only academic skills, but organizational skills and time management. We believe that students learn to connect with an adult who is a subject-matter expert, and through this 1:1 relationship a student is able to develop a mindset that allows him or her to become an independent learner, who eventually self-advocates. Students learn best when the support they receive support which meets them where they are. We meet students where they are and guide them to becoming thriving confident independent learners, who learn to manage their stress, time, and schedule. Stay on this side of the hill and get the support your kids truly deserve. MSS is conveniently located located in downtown HMB.
