South Oak Cliff (SOC) High School has been serving the community since 1952. The school provides an abundance of academic and social opportunities for its students and takes pride in developing great leaders right on campus.
Students choose from five career paths, or endorsements, that serve as the foundation for their career goals.
The STEM pathway incorporates the Academy of Engineering and Academy of Information Technology, both of which allow students to earn college credit. According to SOC teacher Shendolyn Anderson, “Students need to begin choosing their career path because now it is projected that by the year 2024 there will be 9 million jobs in the field of STEM.”
In 2016 the South Oak Cliff Collegiate Academy will open, giving students the chance to earn an associate degree while they earn their high school diploma.
SOC is moving forward and doing great things, empowering students to lead and become the success stories of tomorrow.
