The Cosmetology & Spa Academy is more than a school. We work hard to understand your areas of interest, and encourage you to grow your natural talent. We even host special events and competitions to give you an edge on your path to success.
We understand the importance of real-world experience, so we built all of our beauty programs to include 90% hands-on training. You’ll get plenty of personalized attention at the Cosmetology & Spa Academy — we intentionally limit class size to create the best ratio of instructors to students.
Our beauty salon and student training equipment is not only advanced, but it’s regularly updated. But perhaps most importantly, because you train in a busy, full-service salon that provides beauty services to real clients, you graduate fully prepared, knowing exactly what your career will entail.Learn From The Best
Our instructors are veteran professionals who have worked in some of the nation's finest salons, won prestigious awards, worked on exciting photo shoots and have completed loads of specialty classes. Every one of them is committed to your success. They will share their own experiences with you, provide the personalized attention you deserve, and guide you in your classroom and hands-on training.
In addition to training with your instructors, you also have the opportunity to take advantage of internships, and we encourage you to do so. It’s a simple equation. The more time spent honing and perfecting your skills, the more successful you’ll be in your career.Graduate Services
Upon graduation you have our full support in getting your career off the ground. Our licensure and job placement rates are both over 97%. And there's more.
