    Goodwill strongly believes it is essential to raise education attainment levels in Indiana, which is what Indy Met High School and The Excel Center aim to do. Not only are the lifetime earnings of high school graduates significantly higher than those of dropouts, but children of high school graduates also are 50% less likely to exit high school before graduating than those of dropouts. Goodwill provides opportunities for adults (The Excel Center) and youth (Indianapolis Metropolitan High School).
