About The Excel Center


The Excel Center

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

The Excel Center addresses needs outside the classroom, provides free drop-in child care centers, offers free transportation assistance, and gives students the ability to balance school and work schedules. The Excel Center allows students to learn at their own pace and complete their educational requirements throughout the year. 

At all of our locations,  students develop supportive relationships with staff and classmates to encourage progress and academic engagement. Students often work in teams that meet weekly to offer support, talk about the challenges of balancing school and life circumstances, and celebrate achievements and milestones.
