Back to School

Goodwill Industries of Arkansas

Goodwill is starting the process of opening an Excel Center here in NWA that allows residents over the age of 19 to return to school to receive a high school diploma.

  • Room to grow: Based off the Little Rock Excel program, which supports 350 students, the NWA location will offer free tuition, sit-in classes, and life coaches for its students. The expansion could increase the program's capacity to more than 1,000 students upon completion.
  • Opening doors: In Benton and Washington counties alone, there are 40,000 adults without a high school diploma. The school could potentially be open for enrollment by this fall.
