Personal Attention – The director and faculty treat all students as family. Everyone makes time and resources available to help a student to succeed, if he or she is properly motivated. Any student having difficulty can arrange for a tutor, or meet with academic advisors to resolve problems. You are a valued person here. The latest technology in demand by local employers is taught and is constantly updated to prepare graduates for high-paying jobs. There is an internship program for networking with future employers. Former graduates have a 100% placement record of gaining employment before or shortly after graduation.

Information Technology Associate Degree Program – I am a returning adult student who graduated from high school 40 years ago. Before enrolling at South Hills, I had never used a typewriter(keyboard) or computer. With the help of the director, faculty, and fellow students, I am able to function proficiently after only one 12-week term. I have had to put forth considerable effort and study time, but help and resources were made readily available to me. A few things I had to research on my own, but if I got stuck, my questions were answered. The curriculum is manageable and schedule is perfect for me. All second year students are expected to design a portfolio, a project, and spend the final term in internship. All twelve IT graduates from last year are working or have placements in good paying jobs.

Combination Online and Classroom – Two courses I have use both online software and classroom hands-on exercises for a well rounded approach to reinforce what is being taught. Although the material is not always assigned, it is strongly suggested that a student avail him or herself of these resources. I would assume that other future classes will have similar formats. Classes use visual aids, textbooks, and lectures to cover the course materials. Handouts are also given with supplementary information.
