When planning your cosmetology education, one of the most important factors to consider is the school’s accreditation status. Although voluntary, this standard ensures that a school meets or exceeds minimum standards for educational quality and demonstrates that a school is serious about its mission to provide students with the best educational experience.
Both Jolie Academy locations in Pennsylvania are accredited cosmetology schools, meeting the standards of the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). This independent accrediting commission is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a respected accreditation agency for both postsecondary schools and cosmetology departments throughout the United States.
What Jolie Academy’s Accreditation Status Means for You
As a student at one of Jolie Academy’s accredited cosmetology schools, you can rest assured that you’re getting a quality education — not just through the thoroughness of our curriculum, but through the quality of our instructional staff, availability of administrative services, admissions policies, student support services and the overall quality of our facilities:
- Educational Quality: To maintain our accreditation, Jolie Academy must take responsibility for the educational outcomes of our students.
Through small class sizes, plenty of hands-on instruction and lots of student support, we remain accountable to each student throughout his or her entire cosmetology education to ensure that each one graduates, earns his or her professional license and gets a job in the industry.
- Instructor Involvement: In addition to holding the necessary teaching credentials, instructors at Jolie Academy’s accredited cosmetology schools must take continuing education courses to enhance their own knowledge and to ensure they’re up to date on the latest cosmetology techniques and trends. In addition, all instructors are given yearly performance reviews to ensure they’re meeting Jolie Academy’s standards of educational excellence.
- Student Support Services: To enhance your cosmetology education, all students have access to academic advising and employment assistance to give students all the tools they’ll need to begin their careers. This includes, but is not limited to, study assistance, resume development, job search skills and interview preparation.
- State-of-the-Art Facilities: In addition to meeting all proper fire, building, health and safety requirements, all Jolie Academy locations in Pennsylvania have an adequate amount of classroom and laboratory space to best support the cosmetology education of every student.
Whether you attended one of the accredited cosmetology schools in Pennsylvania will also be important to your future employers, who will want to be sure that you received the best cosmetology education possible before hiring you. By paying attention to a school’s accreditation status and learning as much as possible about their standards for education and overall reputation in the community, you’ll be taking an important step in ensuring your career gets started on the right track.
