High-Quality Cosmetology Education
Empire Education Group students receive a high-quality cosmetology education, led by our seasoned instructors and aided by our friendly faculty and staff.
Select schools offer full & part time programs, as well as specialized career fields for:
Certified Learning in Cosmetology (CLiC)
Our unique Certified Learning in Cosmetology (CLiC) curriculum provides a visually dynamic approach to education, which is also enhanced by digital teaching aids such as White Board and Nextbook technologies.
And, our state-of-the-art schools feature elegant Student Salons where students gain hands-on training in a real-world environment. Students learn marketing, business and retail skills in the Student Salon working with real clients, performing professional beauty services from the Guest Services menu.
Beyond The Classroom
Empire goes beyond the classroom and incorporates events to enhance students' training and education through fundraising activities, humanitarian programs, outreach services, career networking opportunities, and much more.
Empire students also form bonds with the community through Empire's own philanthropic initiative–Empire Gives Back–which sponsors both CUT IT OUT, a national salon industry program combating domestic violence, and local women and children shelters and actively involves the Empire schools, students and staff in their communities. Students have the opportunity to participate in Empire's National Day of Beauty event—a day dedicated to providing beauty services to the public with proceeds donated to local domestic abuse shelters across the country.
And, as a supporter for environmentalism, Empire is leading the cosmetology school industry in the employment of green building initiatives–recently receiving considerable recognition for recent locations in Florida and North Carolina. Empire's eco-friendly schools employ water and energy saving technology as well as recycling centers and other eco-conscious features.
Empire Education Group continually strives to uphold and exceed the organization's reputation for excellence in education, by providing the most advanced and innovative opportunities and programs to support Empire students nationwide.
