The Certificate of Accreditation is on display in the main entry foyer of the Academy.
The Academy is located downtown at 104 E. Market Street, near the main square of Tiffin, where Market and Washington Streets intersect. The Academy occupies three floors of the building which supply it with ample space for study and practice.
The main floor of the building is almost all designated for customer clinic, where the general public can receive all types of hair styling services, as well as skin care, manicures, sculptured nails and other cosmetology related services. These services are all performed by advanced students who are supervised by a staff of well trained, experienced and licensed cosmetology instructors.
The other floors of the Academy are composed of practical and theory classrooms, dispensaries, offices, a locker room and a lunchroom. The entire Academy is air-conditioned and furnished with educational and professional equipment. All of this creates an atmosphere for learning both technical skills and theoretical background information needed to pass the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology exam, and enter the salon work world of today.
