About

The Excel Center® at Goodwill is a unique, tuition-free adult high school that awards industry-recognized certifications and high school diplomas, not GEDs, to adult learners. 

Opening in August 2017 and the first of its kind in the state, The Excel Center responds to the fact that life commitments and circumstances can often stop people from continuing their high school education. We do this by offering access to transportation assistance, childcare and flexible class schedules.

Our Mission

The Excel Center provides adults the opportunity and support to earn a high school diploma while developing career paths that offer greater employment and growth opportunities. Our schools “meet students where they are” in their education by providing a flexible structure and supportive relationships to help students manage work, life and family concerns as they achieve their educational goals.

Our Vision

Thousands of individuals drop out of high school each year, impacting their career potential as employers seek workers with higher skills and specialization. As part of our commitment to enhance career potential and access to high-growth jobs for high school dropouts, The Excel Center provides effective ways to provide adult high school students accelerated learning, opportunities for post-secondary education, and individualized career planning.
