Cosmetology student paints a client's nails
  • Program Highlights:

    In this two-year NYSED Approved CTE Program, students learn the latest techniques in hair cutting, styling, and chemical services, as well as nail and skin care. Students practice cuts and styles on mannequins and classmates, before offering services to customers in our school-sponsored salon. The curriculum includes skill development in the areas of communication, organization, and time management, which are essential to success in the industry.

    Students attend the program for two years, including a summer session between the junior and senior year.  Students need to complete 1,000 hours of theory and practice before they are eligible to take the NYS Cosmetology Licensing Exam.
