About our academy

We spent a lot of time in making the decision to invest and build this academy and choosing a name that reflects our vision.

Socius may refer to: Socii, of the Roman Republic in classical times. a Latin noun meaning "comrade, friend, ally" (adjectival form: socialis) and used to describe a bond or interaction between parties that are friendly



It doesn’t matter what your background is, such as your ancestry, gender, religion, we are building a place where we can unify for a common purpose. 

That is to improve ourselves and help others do the same.
