For more than 50 years, Southern Careers Institute has provided career training in Texas using job-tailored programs to help produce highly marketable graduates. Campuses in Austin, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Harlingen, Pharr and San Antonio offer programs to students in areas like business, cosmetology, medical assisting, medical coding and pharmacy training. The school boasts a brand promise, known as the SCI Edge, which focuses on laser-sharp career preparation through state and national certifications, skills badges and opportunities to connect students with employers. SCI is a career school and, as such, prides itself on providing students with an education that is not only relevant but valuable.

Points of Distinction

  • Unique partner programs, such as with Vidal Sassoon
  • Student eligibility for a variety of national certifications, such as in medical assisting
  • Up to six national certifications to seek after business training
  • Skilled badges that can be earned on SCI Connect
  • Online education in medical billing and coding


Students can learn from qualified instructors no matter which of the school's seven campuses they attend. Instructors are not only supportive but caring just as all SCI staff strive to be. Personnel at the school aim to focus on one thing -- students' education and their future. Instructors help to do by creating an interactive environment in which students learn by doing and by focusing on the skills that they really need in the workforce and for a career.

Campus Life

While students head to campus to attend classes, they can use the school's electronic platform known as SCI Connect to update their profile, see what badges they have earned and look for externships. The Connect page is also available to recent graduates and alumni and helps build connections between students and potential employers. Other support that students can find through SCI includes advising, financial aid and IT services.
