A smart choice.

Choosing a college is a big decision. On top of all the tests and extracurricular activities expected of students, the price tag of a college degree has gone up. SC4 is a smart alternative. Your student can begin on their college journey affordably while also getting a hands-on learning experience and one-on-one attention they likely wouldn’t get in a large university setting. Whether you need information about life on campus, college costs and financing, or how we manage health and safety, here are some resources that will help you feel confident that SC4 is the right choice for your student.
