We couldn’t be more proud of the 128 adult students who received their high school diploma from The Goodwill Excel Center, on June 7th. These graduates worked hard to complete their education and set themselves and their families on the path to a brighter future!
Last Wednesday evening, the Class of 2017 received their high school diplomas from the Goodwill Excel Center! 128 adult students walked the stage to become the third graduating class since the school opened its doors in 2014, and each year has seen more than 100 Central Texans ages 17-50 complete their education and earn a diploma.
When we opened the first adult charter high school in Texas: The Goodwill Excel Center, the only school where adults 26 and over can earn their high school diploma, there was an immediate waiting list. What a great problem to have!
Oh, how we’ve grown – to over 450 students! Now we’re seeing that same level of need with our free, on-site childcare facility, The Goodwill Exploration Center. Many of our student-parents have been able to return to school to earn their diploma that otherwise could not because they are unable to secure childcare. With The Exploration Center, a solution was achieved! But in less than a year, we’ve outgrown our space, and parents are now on a waiting list.
