L’esprit Academy’s goal is to provide unparalleled instruction, through employee to student interactions and consistency in the learning experience so that our graduates can find employment in the Cosmetology, Manicuring, Esthetics or Instructor field.  Our staff is carefully selected, highly qualified and vital to the student experience.  This student-friendly, well supported and state of the art atmosphere is the sustainable competitive advantage to create well prepared, highly skilled graduates. Programs are delivered by both distance education and in person using the secure Microsoft Teams video platform as well as Milday’s MindTap online learning portal.

We follow the industry standard Milady’s curriculum and all state and federal requirements.

A distinguishing factor in L’esprit Academy’s hybrid curricula is the synchronous interactions with our entire education team, staff, local industry professionals and global experts in both a distance learning AND in person environment. Students will be prepared to qualify for the state board examination for licensure in their field of study. All curricula include classes in basic business procedures, standards, and industry insights. Instructor courses are a custom program, with costs determined on an individual basis.

Starting January 1, 2021 L’esprit Academy will have a “Bring Your Own Device” policy.
