"Every teacher that my children have had made a big and positive impact on them and all the students at Excel Academy Chelsea. The teachers are a huge blessing in the lives of their students in terms of academics and emotional development, and the students have great admiration for them."

Ingrid Garcia Mother of two Excel Academy students

"We were getting ready to move my son into college and packing up the car when one of our neighbors asked what we were doing. When I explained that we were bringing my son to college, he couldn't believe it. He said 'people from Chelsea don't go to college!' He was shocked. That's what Excel did for my son and for our family."
