SCI in Brownsville Texas – A Rising Star

While there is no shortage of vocational schools claiming they can give you a quality education, not all have a history of success with students.

Extensive Externships
Externships, or guaranteed internships that immerse you directly into the field you intend to work in, are a central part of the SCI experience. Many of the careers we prepare you for are fast-paced and require great attention to detail, skills that academic training alone cannot teach. By immersing you in these fields, we ensure that you will be prepared for all the likely challenges when you take a full-time job. Our externships also provide a valuable chance to network, making connections with potential employers, co-workers, or business partners. This makes it easier to find a job as soon as you graduate.

Hands-On Highlights
Our emphasis on externships is closely related to our broader emphasis on hands-on education, which is crucial in many of the fields we teach. While academic learning may provide students the knowledge they need to succeed, many struggle to apply that knowledge to the real world. Thus even within the classroom, our students perform the same tasks they will have to perform on the job. This encourages the muscle memory and automatic associations they will need to succeed in their careers.

A Comprehensive Campus
The Southern Careers Institute in Brownsville TX spares no expense to provide all the resources you need to succeed in your studies. On the campus you will find labs, libraries, and the most advanced equipment available for training in your field. In addition, the campus is full of green spaces, which help students to relax. Given that many of our students are juggling full-time jobs and family care in addition to their studies, the chance to relax in green spaces is essential to their success. Although the Southern Careers Institute in Brownsville TX has a strong track record, it is not necessarily right for you in particular. Even if you don’t choose another school, you may be better suited at one of our other campuses with different programs, or you may want to take our online classes.

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
