Our Philosophy of Education
Education is the pathway to success. At Barber and Beauty Academy of Pennsylvania, we believe students bring their past experiences into the learning process and add new knowledge to what they already know in unique ways. Thus, different types of learning experiences should be provided for them.
Given this, our classroom environment includes textbooks, resource books, video, and computers with internet access, all coupled with hands-on experience.
At Barber and Beauty Academy of Pennsylvania, our philosophy also includes an essentialist view in the use of Pennsylvania Cosmetology, Barber and Academic Standards.
Our job as educators is to create a learning environment that is conducive to the ways students are able to learn. A teacher can be a tool of torture or an instrument of encouragement. We believe we can make the classroom a place where students want to come to gain positive, fruitful experiences and walk away better people.
