Goodwill Parochial School, also known as Goodwill Day School, is a historic parochial school for African American children located near Mayesville, Sumter County, South Carolina. It was built about 1890, and is a vernacular two-story, frame building. It is sheathed in weatherboard and set upon a brick pier foundation. The school was sponsored and supported by the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. until 1933. From 1933 to 1960, it was supported by Goodwill Presbyterian Church, when it was consolidated with the public schools.[2][3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[1]
