About Us

Karen Cocina, founded the Main Street Schoolhouse INC in 1994.  Karen has dedicated her life to educating and changing the future of each and every student that enters Main Street Schoolhouse. With the help of her dedicated staff, many of her students have acquired a high school diploma and skills that they could not have received anywhere else. Under her leadership, the school was incorporated and established as a non-profit, non-chartered licensed school, with newly formed global alliances.

Main Street Schoolhouse is truly a unique school that offers a home-like private school with an international atmosphere, licensed by the State of Ohio to teach grades 7-12, but the main focus is on high school for youth and adults. There is also a regularly scheduled, on-going curriculum of ESL, Spanish, and basic skills for adults, youth, and children of our community who speak English or Spanish in order to enrich their lives and enhance their capacity to function more effectively in their jobs, families, and community life. All classes are small and personal with unique, innovative teaching methods bring success to people who have not experienced it before. There is a rich, cultural mix of students and a friendly, skilled teaching staff.

Main Street Schoolhouse has been serving the local community’s educational needs for over 20 year, committed to teaching every child, youth, and adult that enters its doors, no matter what race, nationality or gender.
