“I became a certified medical assistant through The Excel Center and now work for St. Vincent Ascension Hospital in the OBGYN office while attending college full time to obtain my degree to become a Registered Nurse.”

Students who have left high school are able to pick up where they left off at The Excel Center and earn a Core 40 high school diploma. Owned and operated by Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana, The Excel Center offers flexible scheduling and expedited curriculum which helped over 730 adults graduate with a state-recognized diploma in the 2020 – 21 school year… graduates like Shanalin:  “By the time I was 24, I had four kids, was in an abusive relationship and had no additional help…I didn’t know how I was going to get by.”

“I started taking high school equivalency classes at a local high school in the evenings, but quickly realized the classes were taking too long and leaving me with no time for my family,” said Ana.

“I would not have been able to stay at The Excel Center and never would have graduated if they did not offer childcare at the YLCC during my classes.” 

In addition to providing flexible scheduling, childcare during classes, and expedited curriculum, The Excel Center offers students industry-recognized certifications and college credits — all at no cost.

The Excel Center® is operated by Goodwill Education Initiatives, Inc., a not-for-profit organization formed by Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana.
