Welcome to The Helms Academy

At Goodwill, we believe a high school diploma and English proficiency are critical to success in the workplace. They help you secure competitive jobs while increasing advancement opportunities as well as your long-term economic potential. At Goodwill’s Helms Academy, it doesn’t matter when you left high school or how well you know the English language, we are here to help you attain these powerful credentials. Best of all, thanks to Goodwill’s network of retail stores and private funding, enrollment at the Helms Academy is 100% tuition free. Join us on a journey to aspire, advance and achieve.

A high school dropout will earn $200,000 less than a high school graduate over his lifetime. And almost a million dollars less than a college graduate.

Non-English speakers earn approximately 40% less than those with English skills. They also have the lowest full-time employment rates and earnings.
