Mission Statement

The mission of SoCal ROC is to provide all students through industry-linked programs the skills and knowledge necessary to attain their career goals in order to become economically self-sufficient and be a successful contributor to society and a global economy.


The Southern California Regional Occupational Center served as the model for the State of California when Regional Occupational Centers were founded in 1967. At that time the centers were intended to provide training for trades in traditional occupational settings. With the 21st Century, came new challenges and higher expectations for the work force. Today, the wage earner has to be more educated, more technically dependent and more self-reliant than was his/her counterpart 40 years ago. Yet, the Southern California Regional Occupational Center has remained the model for the State through the development of innovative programs, a major emphasis upon technology, and an awareness that Career Technical Education is for everyone, from the individual seeking to enter the job market with upgraded skills, to the college-prep student desiring greater academic challenge and the opportunity to apply knowledge learned.
