Small Business Spotlight – South Coast College

Our small business spotlight today is none other than South Coast College! This college has been in operation for over 50 years, preparing students for careers in Court Reporting, Paralegal, and Medical Assistant professions. 

South Coast College was founded in 1961 in Long Beach, CA, as a private college called Stenotype School of Long Beach. The school relocated a few times before settling in Orange, California – where it has served its students since 2001. The school is headed by President Jean Gonzalez, who was nominated for OC Business Journal’s Women in Business Awards.

SCC is unique in its dedication to a student-oriented environment that supports the work-life-school balance that so many students are navigating. They offer one-on-one support to their students, help them transition into their careers, and continue to check in and support them even after they have graduated. 

Both Court Reporting and Paralegal programs offer day and night classes, increasing students’ flexibility in their schedules. Their small class sizes and industry professional educators give students a more tailored training and journey than they may experience at a larger university.
