Career Placement Assistance
Capri College works to maintain relationships with salon and spa employers. We listen to them for ways we can improve, to keep our education current. Our community involvement and long-standing relationships allow us to assist you with as many employment options as possible.
Experienced, Passionate, Educators
This is, without question, the most important factor in choosing a school. We employ professional, experienced teachers who truly care about you and your education. They will show you the advanced skills they have learned through experience and advanced training. We insist that our educators have at least 3 years industry experience because we know our reputation depends on your success!
For 45 years we have sought out progressive teaching methods and comprehensive curriculum which is frequently updated to include the newest trends. You will learn advanced techniques throughout your training to give you experience and confidence at graduation. We are not a chain or franchise and do not use a "cookie cutter" curriculum. Our owners have local roots, support the community, and are available to talk with students.
Distinguish yourself with an AAS degree from Northeast Iowa Community College - the perfect option for those interested in owning/operating a salon or successfully operating a profitable chair rental agreement. Begin taking classes through NICC while in high school, while at Capri College or after graduation. Classes are available at NICC or online. Credits awarded are determined by NICC.
We strive to deliver the most complete educational experience possible to our students and feel it is vital that your education includes real world business training that will prepare you for your future career. Our training programs are designed to give you the skill to be the best you can be! Click here to learn more or visit the Nuts & Bolts site for students.
Each year Capri College awards over $70,000 in scholarships and tuition waivers to our students. To find out more about applying for a Capri scholarship and other scholarship opportunities, please see this informational PDF: Scholarship Opportunities
Nothing compares to hands-on experience. Our Student Salon & Spa allows students to practice the latest styles and techniques with hands on training with real clients. The result: better technical skills, people skills, and confidence.
Meet new people, make new friends, and have fun! We organize contests (with cool prizes), pizza parties, picnics, a bus trip to the Midwest Beauty Show each year. Student leadership plans fun charity events (dress up/jeans days, bake sales, walking tacos, root beer floats, etc.) and you will have the opportunity to take part in charity and educational events outside of school that will allow you to network with people in the community and have fun while helping out people in need.
Want to get creative & show off your skills? Take part in regional student competitions with Capri support.
