The Excel Center Model Licensing Benefits
A public school license based on The Excel Center model provides a unique opportunity to address one of the most challenging social problems in communities in Indiana and across the United States: improving educational attainment of adults who have dropped out of high school and have limited options for career advancement.
Being a part of The Excel Center Network grants other organizations the rights to use The Excel Center’s proven educational model. The Excel Center Network operates as a collection of independent schools, all of which use and apply The Excel Center’s educational philosophy and educational resources. Members of the network share best practices, lesson plans and resources to equip staff members, as well as school leaders and staff to continuously enhance each school’s performance.
