Interested in a career in cosmetology?
The Northwest ISD CTE Cosmetology Academy provides students with opportunities to gain significant first-hand experiences and to become licensed cosmetologists after a two year plan of study. Students will engage in training focused on business, entrepreneurship, and salon professional skills while mastering theory related content areas.
Students must request enrollment during their sophomore year to attend the Cosmetology Academy for part of their day when they are juniors and seniors (students will remain enrolled at their home campus to take core classes).
