Parent Workshops
South County Cal-SOAP offers various morning and evening workshops to parents of K-12 students throughout the academic year at their child's school site. Topics include financial aid awareness, hands-on FAFSA/CADAA application completion/submission, how to navigate the college application process, and many more.  During our annual South County Cal-SOAP Orientation, students, families, and educators are offered a myriad of workshops in varied topics, ranging anywhere from "The 4 Systems of Higher Education" to "Banking and Financial Literacy to "Disengagement in Education."

Each year our Cal-SOAP graduating seniors who are planning to attend a 2-yr or 4-yr college or university may apply for the South County Cal-SOAP Scholarship. Applications are available each year in December and due in March. Selections for this competitive process are made each April. In addition, we help students to secure additional financial support by assisting them in locating and applying for other academic and need-based scholarships. Each June, the Cal-SOAP scholarship recipients are recognized at SCCC’s signature event, AlumNight. In addition to recognizing the current class of seniors, donations are collected for the scholarship fund for the rising seniors, planning for graduation and college entrance the following year.
SoCal Tour (This in-person activity has been postponed.)

South County Cal-SOAP offers college tours to our students, and for many, this will be their first step on a college campus. Exposing students to various campuses is an essential part of instilling a college-going culture. We offer individual school tours during the year and in late winter we take a tour of Southern California Colleges. During a 4-day adventure with their Cal-SOAP advisors, high school juniors visit college and university campuses, participate in evening workshops, and meet Cal-SOAP alumni throughout the experience.
