Excel Center Will Help Adults Earn a High School Diploma

Excel Center, Goodwill Adult Charter School
Washington, DC – On May 18th, the District of Columbia Public Charter School Board conditionally approved an application by Goodwill of Greater Washington (Goodwill) to open a new adult public charter school serving the Washington, DC community.

The goal of the school, to be known as the Goodwill Excel Center, is to provide adults the opportunity and support to earn a high school diploma and post-secondary education while developing career paths that present greater employment and career growth opportunities.

The Excel Center will offer a high-quality, tuition-free adult education for residents of the District of Columbia.

In addition to the academic curriculum, the Excel Center will provide a free, on-site drop-in child care center, transportation assistance and life coaching, while emphasizing a school-work-life balance through flexible scheduling, extended hours and year-round terms.

“Today there are more than 60,000 adult residents of the District of Columbia without a high school diploma”, said Catherine Meloy, Goodwill of Greater Washington President & CEO, President & CEO of Goodwill of Greater Washington. “The goal of the Excel Center is to dramatically decrease that number while at the same time decreasing the number of unemployed and underemployed adults in and around our nation’s capital.”

Students will learn at their own pace and complete educational requirements throughout the year.

The Goodwill Excel Center will be located at 1776 G Street, NW, Washington, DC and is scheduled to begin classes in August of 2016.
