Myerstown Enrichment Center (MEC) is a Christian homeschool support group that was founded in 1995. We meet each Tuesday, except for listed holidays, from September to May and our volunteer eight-member board coordinates and administers MEC activities. Our mission is to provide educational resources and support for families.
MEC offers traditional parent/member-taught educational classes from nursery through high school, with our primary focus on first through twelfth grades. Nursery through kindergarten is primarily a babysitting/enrichment service designed to free the mothers of older students, although some academics are included.
Our purpose is to work cooperatively in order to teach our children, while offering extra opportunities to help develop student leadership, providing incentives and a place where students are able to showcase their achievements. We also seek to offer assistance to comply with the PA Homeschool Law and to be a source of support to families through educational, personal, and prayer support.
