Philosophy and Goals –Mission Statement


Our basic philosophy is to offer training to prepare successful graduates with the skills needed to secure employment in cosmetology arts and sciences, and /or other related fields.  With this in mind, we continually survey the profession to keep abreast of current trends, designs and techniques required by employers.  Teachers give “individual” as well as “class” instruction.  This combination helps serious students to realize their goals.

The highest academic and career standards are maintained to assure graduates of superior capability in their profession.  The curriculum is flexible enough to allow for new procedures and techniques as they are developed, yet solid enough to maintain high academic standards.  The final objective is, of course, to graduate students who will secure and retain employment and advance their profession.
