Motivated Young Scholars (MYS) was established as a 501 (c) 3 not-for profit organization in 2012.
As a homeschool diploma granting organization with Pennsylvania Department of Education, 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. The center is in an athletic facility and serves as a co-op for families. Families can participate in tumbling classes, dance classes, gymnastics, skill building, and more.
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.
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.
After we receive the Diplomas Request form, the information will be given to your 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.
