An Overview of Merit
MERIT is an education institution focusing on one-on-one classes, college advisory, our MERIT curriculum, and our accompanying MERIT books & publications. We provide in-person as well as online consultation to both parents and students in engaging and advancing the student's academic opportunities. We emphasize an individualized approach that caters to the students' specific interests and passions for learning.
Within the MERIT family, we provide a comprehensive educational approach through Merit Academy, an independent school. The Academy provides a carefully designed course load that incorporates the core learning desires of the students and embraces the full spectrum of learning from Merit Academy's kindergarten through 12th grade curriculum. Our approach and educational philosophy extend from Merit's Story.
The Academy's curriculum is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges
(WASC) as a Supplemental Education Program (SEP)*
for grades 9-12 and the Student and Exchange Visitors Program (SEVP) for international students.
Additionally, Merit's grade 9-12 core curriculum has been approved by UC A-G, and Merit offers many AP courses as well.
From ProjectMERIT, college admissions through graduate school, and Merit Academy's one-on-one classes, Merit continues to lead the way in custom-tailored education. Continue on to see what benefit we can offer students.
