June 27, 2012 - PRLog -- The Goodwill L.I.F.E. Academy, a Lee County charter school for students with intellectual disabilities, has launched its new website at  Some of the features of the new site include an online newsroom along with videos, success stories, and testimonials from parents of L.I.F.E. Academy graduates.

The L.I.F.E. Academy ( is a tuition-free middle and high school located in Fort Myers. The school is designed to promote self-advocacy and develop life skills for independent living.  L.I.F.E. Academy curriculum and learning experiences provide a balance of three vital educational components: Academics for daily living, life skills, and vocational training

The new website was designed by the communications and development department at Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida (

“We really hadn’t been using the school’s website to its full potential,” explains Kirsten O’Donnell, Goodwill’s director of public relations.  “We surveyed several of our parents, and they gave us great direction as to the website’s content.”

Goodwill hopes that the new website’s design and content will aid in student recruitment for the 2012-13 school year.

“We graduated eight students in May, and another aged out of the school system,” explains O’Donnell.  “That’s double the number of graduates we’ve had in any other year.  If we want our school to continue growing, we need to make sure people know the school is available to them.”

According to website designer Charissa Comerota, future plans for the site include an events calendar and faculty/staff biographies.

The Goodwill L.I.F.E. Academy is currently accepting students for the Fall 2012 semester.  For enrollment information, visit the school’s website at or contact principal Lynn Pottorf at (239) 334-4434.

Academy, as part of its mission to help people with disabilities and disadvantages overcome their barriers to employment and independence.  Other supported programs include Goodwill Job-Link centers, the Four Wheels For Work vehicle assistance program, the SWFL MicroEnterprise project, and income-sensitive housing for people with disabilities.  For more information about Goodwill’s programs, visit
