About Us

Motivated Young Scholars (MYS) was established as a 501 (c) 3 not-for profit organization in 2012.   MYS is very passionate about the well-being of youth and families. We provide services that help build and strengthen homeschool communities by providing resources and information regarding homeschool regulations, curriculum choices, intervention options, classes, events, co-ops & meet-up opportunities.


Our homeschool center provides a place where families can come with their learners to receive home-school education and curriculum support.   While at our center, learners can participate in tumbling classes, dance classes, gymnastics, skill building, cooking classes, and more. 

Visit the Homeschooling tab to learn about our Homeschool Academy and how you homeschooler can benefit from our virtual and onsite support programs. 


Want an Accredited Diploma?

MYS is one of the diploma-granting organizations, recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) to provide diplomas to graduates of Pennsylvania home education programs. 

Acquiring Diploma

Families, who are members, can have their documents downloaded into a Google designated account to hold samples of the student's work until graduations.  There will be a fee of $35 to access the account.  Parents can then request a diploma using the Diplomas Request Form and send it in along with $65 for the Diploma.  You can also pay the Diploma Processing Fee through the Pay Now button below.

After we receive the Diplomas Request form, the information will be given to a designated evaluator who can then fill out the student's transcripts.  A copy of the transcripts with the evaluator's letter will be mailed to you to distribute to a prospective college or employer.

We believe all youth can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
