There are several institutions that surround Teso College, namely Soroti Flying School, Arapai Agricultural College (that has recently become part of Busitema University) and Soroti Senior Secondary School. The train station used to be 2 km from the school, and will probably be located in the same place once the Mbale Soroti railway lines are renovated. In the early seventies, The Meat Packers factory was only 2 km from the school. The news in town is that the Government plans to turn this defunct factory into a fruit extracting factory. The newest additions to the neighbourhood are: Soroti University of Science and Technology, Teso University and Pilgrim University Soroti.
The flying school is located in Soroti town about 6 km from TCA. The training planes fly over Teso College Aloet quite often in the evening, creating a difference from the usually quiet surroundings. Several TCA students have trained in Soroti flying school after completing their ‘A’ Level studies.
The East African Civil Aviation Academy, which is 2km northeast of Soroti town, was established in 1971 to train pilots and aircraft engineers for the East African market. With technical assistance from the UNDP-ICAO training programmes, equipment was provided and the academy was linked to other institutions outside East Africa. The academy has since graduated over 600 pilots and engineers, in addition to other professional aviation personnel.
The revived East African community has since developed the academy as a centre of excellence in aviation training for the region, with awards which are recognized by education regulations all over the world. Training aircraft are available up to a Cessna 310. The flying school has dormitories, food service and classrooms.
