Yelianis from administration was friendly and above and beyond with helping through my process. Carlos flores despite all bumps got me set up through fasfa and got my paperwork through manually in order for me to start my courses on the 1st of april. I appreciate all your patience and dedication to helping me advance my education. Looking forward to starting on Monday.

My experience was amazing. Naomi Ramos and Carlos Flores was amazing. I’ve been doing this process for years and this was the best team I have worked with. They were informative, knowledgeable and very encouraging. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in pursuing their education. They rock

For the barbering program it is all computer work . Over 3+ assignments due every week plus test . Teachers leaving and being changed last second . Get ready to have the cheapest equipment offered as well . When entering this school you will be told they will have hair services on walk in clients like a real barber shop which is 100% lies , you are told last second once in class that you will need to bring in your own clients or trust each other to cut classmates hair which gets old super quick and isn’t enough to establish a real clientele or shop skills . They have a Solon that has been ranted and raved about opening back up for walk ins which has never come close to happening. Each assignment is usually essays and 20+ questions than definitions from the online book followed by test every single week . There is only 3 days of school 9-1pm . Everything being taught at this school can be easily learned at home on YouTube . If you want to learn book work about barbering and not the actual hands on skill of barbering than this is the place for you ! During the walk through/tour it seems nice and everyone is cool but this program is really not good for hands on real life/ practical skills . Be ready to spend 95% of your time doing computer work to become a “master barber”. And to give real life perspective I’ve recently ran into a graduate from this school at a busy barbershop I go to struggling to get clients and do decent work to get by ,mostly sitting in the chair on the phone while every else is performing clean cuts on walk ins making $… halfway through the school year currently and more than half the students are still scared to hold clippers and can’t perform a basic haircut unless they were self taught previously at home ! Beware of this program . 1 star for effort.
