“The smaller classes and one-on-one interactions really made it easier to understand concepts better. So I could write code first time in my life and I'm glad I got the opportunity in SOC."
Jamal UnsalGrade 12, Jordan
“The teachers here are really helpful on my studies and college/university choices.”
"I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that Nnamdi has gotten admission into Alberta and to use this opportunity to say thank you to SOC."
"We sincerely wish to thank you for the impact you made on Precious during his stay in Hamilton, his admission to SOC and UNB, we thank you! Also, for making his movement to Fredericton, New Brunswick very peaceful. I know I can’t thank you enough, but our Almighty God will do it for me. My wife and I are really grateful."
"I am using this opportunity to thank you for your kind gesture towards our son Edikanabasi and our entire family."
"My husband and I would like to express our profound appreciation for the care and protection provided to our son, Mafeng Dakim, especially during this global pandemic and for the great support in his studies. You took away our worries through the proper care you accorded him and his teachers were very supportive of his online studies. We are extremely satisfied not only with the high standard of education, support, and compassion from his teachers but the welcoming environment, which aided his fast acclimatization to his studies being an international student."

“Thank you very much for your great sense of responsibility and care shown during the very difficult time that Noe endured before joining your school. I'm so grateful for having taken time including your patience to educate and taking care of him as well; I remember that being a francophone, learning in English for him it was not easy. Today date, this chapter thank God is closed even new challenges are waiting for him. My congratulations to all of you and to all the students and Noe's classmates. I extend my congratulations and appreciation to the Principal who remains so kind and helpful."
Mia PhanGrade 11
“School staff here is very friendly and always try their best to help us. We have many courses here to choose from and we can select based on our own interest and future study area. We have many interesting events and activities like movie night, outdoor excursion, university visits and school trips. I have made friends from many different countries. I like my life here and I would also recommend SOC for your future study in Canada.”
Madeena AhmedClass of 2018
“I came to SOC in February, so I arrived really late in the school year. Settling down was easier than I expected because everyone really cared about your wellbeing. The teachers were willing to help with extra classes and notes I had missed. Ms. Currie advised me on courses I needed to do and walked me through all the university applications. I am headed to Carleton University, to study Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Eventually, I hope to be a doctor. I will always be grateful to SOC.”
Demi AtiladeAlumni. Registered Nurse at Hamilton General Hospital
“SOC was a very close-knit school where I made lifelong friends. Also, the teachers were really invested in you. Their attitude was always, “what we can do to help you get where you want to go?”. Thanks to SOC, my friends and I all got into great universities. I graduated with a Nursing degree from McMaster University and was the featured speaker at the 2016 Pinning Ceremony - like the valedictorian of my class.”
Mr. Charles IdusogieParent
“At SOC, they give parents the ability to monitor their child’s performance and behaviour online. They take very good care of the kids. Also, the teaching is excellent. My son, who used to struggle with maths, ended up tutoring other students in calculus! I will recommend SOC any day, any time, to any child, from any country.”
