About Us

​Welcome to Merced Scholars Charter School! 


On behalf of the Merced Scholars Charter School staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. We at MSCS look forward to working with students, parents, and community members to provide families with the most memorable and rewarding educational experience possible.

We at MSCS wish to equip each and every student with the appropriate skills and knowledge to be successful. Whether it is pursuing a career or attending college, we prepare students for their futures. 

At MSCS, your child will have the opportunity ​to work at their own pace using their academic strengths and personal interests to pursue their education. You and your child will work side by side with our experienced credentialed teachers to ensure that the education your child receives is standards-based and delivered in a way that is personalized to fit your child's needs.  

We are very proud of our relationship with Merced College. If your child is in high school, he/she will have the opportunity to enroll in college courses at Merced College concurrently with his/her high school courses and earn dual credit. We offer the college placement test at our school.  A college counselor will review the scores and meet with families at our school to ensure your child is placed in the appropriate college courses.

I, along with my staff, look forward to providing each and every student with the best educational experience possible. We want to ensure your child's success and that we are standing by our school motto, "achieving academic excellence one student at a time." 

My door is always open so please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  You can contact me at (209) 381-5165 or email me at
