Welcome to the

Beauty Academies

Why our academies?

Our academies are centrally located in the business districts of each town. Each one provides a high volume of clients in our low-cost student salons, in turn, producing well-practiced stylists.

We offer four programs- Cosmetology, Teacher Training, Nail Technology, and Esthetics. Our cosmetology classes start in January, April, June, September, and November. The Teacher Training, Nail Technology, and Esthetics classes are offered on an ongoing enrollment basis. Before graduation, all students are prepared to take the PA State Board of Licensing Examination. Upon completion of the course of study, students are prepped and ready to be gainfully employed in the industry.
