About Overview

Purpose Statement 

Our purpose is to close the talent skills gap by elevating human capital and empowering individuals in new careers while adhering to the highest education and business standards.

Of all the ways we help our students build successful lives, SCI is most proud of making each individual student more marketable in their field.

Southern Careers Institute has developed a laser focus on making our students more marketable with customized and employer-tailored programs.

1. Preparing for National or State-Recognized Certifications

Most programs at SCI focus on preparing students with career training that will help them become eligible to earn multiple certifications and stand out when compared to graduates of other accredited colleges.

2. Career Skills Badges

Every program gives our students the opportunity to earn a variety of career skills with electronic badges that serve as credentials that our employer partners recognize and value.

3. SCI Connect

Our SCI Connect online platform matches our students to our employer network needs, and employers now have access to the verifiable skills badges and credentials in one location. Our platform gives every student an electronic profile that our career services team uses to market the student’s verifiable skills badges and certifications to the SCI employer network. The goal is to provide the connection with employers to help them stand above the crowd of graduates from other accredited technical schools.
