What Students Like Best About The Salon Professional Academy
At The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) we focus on creating an inviting culture where people from all walks of life can feel welcome and supported. In addition to our goal to provide industry-leading knowledge and skills, we want our students to have an amazing, life changing experience during their short time with us. We believe learning should be fun and exciting! Our Cosmetology, Esthetics, Massage Therapy and Nail Technology students and graduates have a lot to say about their TSPA experience. Here is what a few of our students like best about our school.
After 11 months as a Cosmetology student, Julie Ly shared the following about her time at TSPA.
“My favorite thing so far… is the camaraderie between the students.”
“I chose TSPA mainly because of the environment…the students and staff are very close with each other.”
“The most important thing I have learned in my time at TSPA isn’t just the technical skills, but actually how to treat people. The staff do a really good job of teaching customer service.”
“I would definitely recommend TSPA to anybody who’s interested in a good cosmetology program”
We believe every student should expect a great education from their school. At TSPA that is our top priority, but we also want to help you fall in love with your career by enjoying the journey to get there! If an education that includes an inviting, friendly culture with a lot of fun experiences mixed in fits you, contact our admissions department to start the journey to your dream career today!
At The Salon Professional Academy, all students from our Cosmetology, Esthetics, Massage Therapy and Nail Technology programs receive an iPad on their first day of class. We use iPads for classroom lessons, career specific aps, and in times of emergency we use them for distance learning.
Schools across the world have closed their doors either voluntarily or by mandate. We all agree this was a must, to ensure the safety and health of our students and their families. For those who were prepared, teaching and learning did not end.
We have very extensive distance curriculum in place for times like the global pandemic we are all currently dealing with. Rather than have our students put their education on hold, we feel it is extremely important to continue teaching and learning.
When searching for the Cosmetology, Esthetics, Massage Therapy or Nail Technology academy that best fits your needs, remember to find out which schools offer distance learning during times of emergency.
We hope you are all safe, healthy and doing your part to slow the spread!
At TSPA we like to celebrate everything from your first day here to passing your boards and entering the salon & spa world!
First day of Massage Therapy Class!
One of our biggest celebrations is the JUMP party, where we celebrate students who have either qualified or are jumping to the next level on the Salon floor. Qualifying and Jumping are based on several factors including number of services performed, number of referrals, number of pre-books, types of services, etc… Jumping is a major achievement, so we CELEBRATE!
Sometimes it gets a little CRAZY, but our students have a blast and that’s what it’s all about!
In addition to Jump and Qualify recognition, students are also recognized for their achievements in retail sales and individual service numbers.
Oh…. and did we mention prizes? Lots and lots of prizes!
Student Advisory Council is a key component to the functioning of The Salon Professional Academy, bringing together student leaders and staff.
The philosophy of Student Advisory Council is “SAC is an organization of students who hold the common interest of serving as the driving forces in upholding and increasing school spirit, helping their fellow students voice concerns and ideas, and allowing members a chance to develop and use leadership skills in both the school and community.”
It is the fact that students engage each other in these skill-sets that establish the fundamental groundwork that is SAC.
There are staff members that are involved; however, they take minor roles. One student from each class (January Cosmo, March Cosmo, May Cosmo, July Cosmo, September Cosmo, November Cosmo, Esthetics, Massage Therapy, Nail Tech) is elected by their peers.
The key role of each elected member is to take responsibility for voicing their constituents (fellow students) concerns and ideas, as well as informing them about current endeavors within the school.
Student Advisory Council also teaches various lessons in time management, leadership and efficiency.
As a whole, Student Advisory Council helps all of the school system by bringing concerns and ideas to a neutral party, in order to affect positive change. It also helps to build leadership skills and shape members into more mature and confident adults.
