Career School NY, Inc opened for classes in October, 2005. It was created to bring Staten Island something that our community had sorely lacked; a home grown Personal Enhancement School featuring creative programs for careers that are still in high demand. All our curriculums are structured to insure that every aspect of the New York State Mandated licensure examinations is covered fully and in depth.
Located in the business district of Staten Island, one block from Borough Hall and the ferry, trains and buses our school’s programs are designed to allow students the maximum amount of time to practice their skills. Students spend part of their day in lab rooms and the student salon working on both mannequins and clients. There is creative instruction that allows students to express themselves artistically.
Students are given every opportunity to explore their unique vision, while a dedicated staff of instructors and administrators are there every step of the way to help them incorporate their own style within the realities of business and commerce. The Personal Enhancement Industry, in both the U.S. and internationally, is exploding as reports note that there are needs for thousands of new professionals every year. From the local salon to a Hollywood movie set, there is a Cosmetologist, Esthetician or Barber in the picture. When licensed, your career and lifestyle is yours to decide.
Books are not the only avenue to an education and learning should be experienced in a variety of ways. The school has close and active relationships with the leading hair and cosmetic companies as well as stylists who constantly visit to demonstrate the hottest styles and techniques in the industry which can lead to certification in extensions and straightening. Our curriculum is also enhanced by the many classes in color taught by experts in the field of color.
SCHOOL MISSION – Career School NY's mission is to provide high quality training, to acquire practical skills, to gain personal self-confidence, to gain employment in the personal enhancement/medical field and to accomplish all of this with special emphasis towards meeting students individual needs.
We hope your visit to our site will lead to a visit to our school.
