About our academy

WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN MAKING THE DECISION TO INVEST IN AND BUILD THIS ACADEMY. WE SPENT THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME 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). It’s used to describe the bond between parties that are mutually working towards a shared goal.
