Senior Cosmetology Program
Credits: 4.0

Program Philosophy

Our goal is to prepare our students for State Board of Cosmetology Testing and for cosmetology related employment. In order to achieve these goals, the student must have enthusiasm for the cosmetology industry and eagerness to work with and for others as well as a will to learn.
As teachers, we work as a team to develop and create lessons in which the students benefit both academically and creatively. Students will be responsible for various duties including housekeeping (station, sinks, shampoo area, dispensary), laundry (towels), reception duties (appointment taking/communication skills, inventory, money collection, etc.), as well as salon management duties. Students will be held accountable for all monies during the week that reception duties are assigned. The student is completely responsible for his/her duty during the week for which it is assigned.
These are just some of the various techniques used to incorporate responsibility into the classroom along with confidence and self-esteem while preparing the students for licensing and employment.
