Message from the owner - Kris Stecker
Thank you for visiting our school web site to learn more about who we are.
There are a few simple keys to success in life: Look good, feel good and have a good attitude. The last one is much easier to do if you look and feel your best. And for anyone who has suffered through someone having a bad hair day can testify, nothing goes right when you don't look good.
We are blessed with the best job in the world: We get to teach people in a career that they love at the same time we teach them to look and feel their best. Our graduates are changing people's lives. The number of makeover shows and related beauty shows are a testament to the power that appearance plays in everyday life. Beautiful people that are well groomed and healthy make more money and are generally more successful in all aspects of life. This has been statistically proven.
As a consumer, you are faced with a difficult situation. Education is a very lucrative field and has attracted extremely aggressive companies who spend more on marketing and sales than they do on education. Your challenge is to get beyond the hype and discover the schools that can provide you with a truly superior education. We provide some pointers to help point you in your search.
The foundation of any school is the quality of instructors and curriculum. All schools claim to have the best so it is very difficult for the consumer to At Spa Tech Institute we place a very high value on our teachers, both individually and as a team. We pay our teachers more than any other school and give them teacher training provided by Clear Point Education that is unique in the industry. It teaches empowerment, learning styles and teaching techniques based on over 25 years of training adult students. When you meet our teachers and see them working with the students in the cosmetology clinic you will see why our students excel. They are simply an excellent group of teachers.
One of our other goals is to teach our students life skills and communication skills that prepare them for a professional environment that is above the current industry standard. We believe that through teaching the students to handle themselves as mature professionals, conducting themselves with courtesy and confidence, they will influence any salon or spa they where they work.
I look forward to meeting our students and helping them discover their dreams.
