Many prospective students ask us, “Is Southern Careers Institute a good school?” It is ultimately up to you to make that decision, but to help you, here are the things we value most about our school.  

1. Range of Programs
We offer a wide range of career programs across several fields, including health care (such as our medical assistant, pharmacy technician, and medical office specialist courses), personal care (like our cosmetology course), business (such as business accounting specialist and computer support specialist), and trade (HVAC and welding). All our programs lead directly to careers in fields where there are large numbers of jobs but often a shortage of workers.  

2. Flexible Study Options
Our on-campus courses are available during the day, evening, or weekend, meaning that you can choose a time that best suits your schedule and continue with your other commitments. If you want to work full time or need to take care of your family while studying, the best option for you could be an online course. We now offer both our medical coding and billing specialist and business accounting specialist programs fully online, and more courses will be coming soon.  

3. Financial Aid
Education is a great investment: it can allow you to break into a career where you may earn double your current salary. However, some people are unable to pay tuition fees upfront. As we believe that everyone should have the same opportunity to study, we offer a range of financial aid options, including need- and academics-based grants and scholarships, loans, and veterans’ benefits. We will even help you find scholarships from external organizations to increase your aid.  

4. Practical Experience
All our courses offer hands-on training in addition to classroom lectures to ensure that you feel prepared for a job after you graduate. You will have the chance to work with industry-standard equipment and will receive guidance from experienced professionals. Many of our courses also include internships, allowing you to gain real experience that is beneficial to your training and looks great on your resume.  

5. Job Support
To ensure that you find a job soon after you graduate, we offer employment support services, such as networking with potential employers and job fairs where you can build up your contacts. You can also take part in our workshops to learn how to create a winning resume and nail your interviews. Our job support services are open to all our students long after they have graduated from SCI.   What makes a good school is down to the needs and preferences of the student. If you value things like training for a career where job candidates are in high demand, hands-on experience, and financial support to pay for your tuition, SCI is a good fit for you.

What SCI Students Are Saying

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”


Denise S.
Medical Assistant

“I am extremely grateful for the assistance I received from SCI’s Career Services team. I enjoy where I work and what I do. SCI has helped me succeed in life by getting me the necessary education and by making me a stronger and more confident person.”


Raquel S.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”


Bonnie M

“I am very happy with where I am and where I’m going. Through high school, I struggled with math. When I came to SCI, I enrolled in the Business Accounting Specialist program to see if I could do it. SCI provided me with the accounting skills I needed to help me find a career. Now, I have an amazing career and room to grow in the company.”
