Partner Spotlight: The Goodwill Excel Center

The Goodwill Excel Center is the only school part of Shelby County Schools that enables adults to earn a high school diploma, as opposed to a high school equivalency credential. The Excel Center does not charge tuition for students to attend and aims to reduce the barriers of earning a high school diploma by providing flexible, accelerated eight-week learning sessions and holistic student support services. Services include on-site childcare, transportation assistance, life coaching, counseling, and referrals to partner organizations in the community. This model undoubtedly makes a difference in its students' lives. Slingshot is honored to partner with The Excel Center and is excited to share a glimpse into their impact through the statistics above.
