Forty Years of Success at SCICON

In 1978, The Friends of SCICON raised the funds necessary to purchase one thousand acres of private land adjoining the SCICON campus. This purchase ensured forever the natural beauty and secluded setting of the SCICON campus.

In 1981, funds were raised to build the first wheel-chair accessible cabin at SCICON. This Handicabin allows all students, regardless of abilities, to attend the SCICON program.

In 1991, the Friends of SCICON, with the help of the BIA of Kings & Tulare counties, constructed the Health Center. This beautiful building serves as the nurse's office, infirmary and nurse living quarters.

In 2007, the Friends of SCICON raised over forty thousand dollars for the purchase of necessary furnishings and instructional supplies for SCICON's newest facility, Eagle Point Village. With Eagle Point Village completed, SCICON can continue to serve the growing student population of Tulare County and surrounding communities.
