Do Your Research

The first thing you need to do is figure out which program you want to enroll in. Are you more interested in massage therapy or cosmetology? Choose the program you’re most passionate about and do research about it. This is a great way to make sure you’re prepared before even visiting our school. You also need to make sure you have a high school diploma or equivalency and your high school transcripts, as you’ll need these to be admitted to any of our programs.

Schedule a Tour

Scheduling a tour of our school is important. This gives you the chance to see the actual location where you would be studying. It’s also a great opportunity to ask admissions representatives and other staff members all your questions in person. There are just some things that are better-discussed face-to-face rather than over the phone or email. Your future is one of them! On a tour, you can see classrooms, the student salon training area, and take a look at at the products you’d be working with. You may also even see current students training with educators.

Plan Your Schedule

Next, you need to decide what type of schedule works best for you. For example,  the cosmetology, massage therapy,  programs are only available full-time. If you’ve got a full-time job, or a family to take care of, part-time classes could be your best option. For those with a little more flexibility, full-time classes can allow you to jump headfirst into your education. Whichever you choose, classes at TSPA Rochester can set you on the path to a beautiful future!
