With the growth of the City of Austin, Southern Careers Institute felt the need to grow with our beautiful city as well. With this, SCI is excited to announce the relocation of our Austin campus. A new Austin Southern Careers Institute is currently under construction in South Austin and is opening in the Fall of 2016.
“Our goal is to make the new Austin location our flagship campus. With that mind, we are going above and beyond to create a great environment for students and faculty to succeed, find new ways to stimulate their learning, and provide some great amenities within this new campus.” – CEO Jacob Mayhew
We know how important real-life situations are for our students, and with that understanding, the students’ learning environments are receiving the utmost attention as the new campus classrooms were designed specifically for the programs’ needs.
For example, we are building a new state-of-the-art Pharmacy Technician mock-up center. This center will allow students to perform tasks in the classroom as they would in a real pharmacy, preparing every student for real world application of their skills after graduation.
A heavy emphasis is being placed on technology for our new campus. Internet access will never be a problem for students and teachers as the new Austin campus is being outfitted with 100 megabits per second wireless internet throughout. Ensuring that no student is disconnected from their education, new laptop computers are being made available on campus allowing students access to a laptop for coursework, homework, or for further instruction and tutoring.
With all the hard work students put in at SCI, they also deserve a place to relax. Our new flagship campus will have a dedicated student lounge and an atrium, where students can take a few minutes to relax or eat lunch. Not only that, teachers and staff will be excited to know that SCI has created a specific lounge for faculty and staff to enjoy when they are not teaching the minds of tomorrow.
We also know parking can be a problem in Austin. SCI’s new campus will include plenty of free parking for our students and faculty, regardless of what time you get to your classes during the day. The campus is also conveniently located on multiple bus routes, so students without a car can travel easily to and from our new campus.
New Career Opportunities
At SCI, we pride ourselves in giving students the tools to succeed in their future endeavors, and with our new Austin campus, we’re thrilled to be able to introduce new career training programs to the Capitol City.
In addition to our existing Business, Medical, and Technology career training programs, Trades programs will be introduced. These new trades programs will focus on training future SCI students to become an automotive service technicians, an HVAC technicians, or a professional welders.
Austin’s newest Southern Careers Institute campus is located in the Southwood Shopping Center at 1701 W Ben White Blvd., near the intersection of Highway 290 and Manchaca Road (Between Gold’s Gym and Blazer Tag).
