Early in 2016, The Armstrong Educational Trust located in Kittanning Pennsylvania decided to move forward with re-branding their organization by creating a partnership with Hopper Innovative Solutions, a local marketing firm. Hopper Innovative Solutions worked with the Armstrong Educational Trust to create the new brand identity consisting of a new logo design, responsive website design, social media marketing, window/door graphics, and exterior signs. With the assistance of Hopper Innovative Solutions, The Armstrong Educational Trust announced their official name change to The Armstrong Center for Community Learning (ACCL) on July 1, 2016. In addition, the website www.armstrongcenter.org, was launched containing information concerning all of the services they now offer. Hopper Innovative Solutions worked closely with the ACCL to establish a positive re-branding experience, one that better reflects both the current and future mission of the organization and its goals toward assisting adult learners within the Armstrong County community.
The Armstrong Educational Trust was formed in 1963 as a nonprofit organization by local citizens seeking to enhance post-secondary education and training opportunities within Armstrong County. However, even with this change of name, logo, and marketing message, the mission remains the same. The ACCL remains a nonprofit organization committed to promoting higher education opportunities within Armstrong County. The ACCL provides an established learning center, where educational programs, including GED & CLEP testing, are offered to residents of Armstrong County.
