Beauty School Greenville, SC
This advanced training program is offered to students by professional and well-trained educators whose goal is to gear graduates towards the real world of work as well as continuing to emphasize their people skills and promotion & growth of their business once they graduate. The encouragement to continue their training throughout their lives probably more than anything else helps explains why 9 out of every 10 graduates from the Academy are working in the field of cosmetology three years after they graduate. Sadly, the national average is only 1 out of 10. That’s right; our graduates have a success rate that is the mirror opposite of those from most other schools.”
