I would love to be able to say this was the most pleasant experience I've had with school procedures, but the whole process seemed long and I already had some of the paper work done. They asked me the amount of money I would feel comfortable paying out of pocket every month, which to me seems very odd I've never had that down to me before. I'm still very confused by why they asked that and now charging me. The overall staff did work well together and had smooth transitions. Very nice group that made me feel very welcomed and it felt like they cared!

Business Response:

I had my ups and downs here. With all the support from the staff I managed to achieve a brighter future. I would not be where I am today with out this school pushing me to my limits to unlock who I truly am. They have made me a machine in my scope of practice. I will always remember where I gained the confidence to achieve a higher education. Thank you SCI you have touched my heart and mind in the most knowledgeable way.

The over all experience at Southern Careers Institute, Austin Campus was a huge change in Dynamic, Routine, and overall educational experience. While the Directors do their very best to assist all students in achieving their long term goals to attain a whole career, they make sure that they have the time to be human as well and go above and beyond to make sure that the students are at their best mindset. This past year that I have spent with them feels more like 10 years of experience with so many different students that I met, nurtured and felt the experience of seeing them graduate. My over all personal experience is one that I will never regret and over all feel that this is a home for those who love to help others, to the point where there are no options left to exhaust in order to make sure the student climbs another step in their life choices. SCI does care, they have a heart and will do anything to make sure that those who are looking for a chance or opportunity to better themselves no matter the past have it here. I want to thank all of those who have helped me and supported me through my role as an admissions rep for a year. I also want to thank my students who made me feel a whole person as I saw them grow and change into new people who have the hope, excitement, and drive to do their best. Once again. Thank you SCI, for the opportunity and great experience you have provided! Over and out- VL Admissions Rep. PS. To my students, Keep hitting it hard. Your experience will flourish as soon as you hit that first job! Don't ever give up, and don't look back at the past. "Arriba y Adelante"- VL's Grandmother

"I recently achieved my dream of becoming a CDL driver, passing my CDL exams at our local DMV in Edinburg. Mr. Gonzalez was such a great instructor, even though it was raining I passed with flying colors!”


Juan L.

“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.

“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
Medical Assistant

“I am now a certified Lab Tech. SCI helped me get an externship, and I came out with a job. After my little sister had cancer, I knew I wanted a career in the medical field that allowed me to help others. I am happy about what I do.”


Sidney B

“The best place ever!! Ms.Tonia rocks she is the best teacher… I love going to school my time there is amazing.”

Olga C.

“Southern Careers Institute totally surpassed my expectations. Once I finished school, the Career Services team helped me find a job. I would tell anyone thinking about starting career training that you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain. I wish I would have started my training sooner.”
