Enrolling in beauty school is a big decision. Scheduling a tour is an important piece of the puzzle. At The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) of Holland, we want every prospective student to get a chance to tour. This is a perfect opportunity to start a relationship with us, ask questions, and see our school firsthand. It’s also the perfect opportunity to overcome fears, find a home and feel included before you even start!
How to Set Up the Tour
If you want to tour TSPA of Holland, you can schedule an appointment online or by phone, or you can just drop by! Our friendly staff is always willing and ready to welcome any new prospective students.
What to Bring
On your tour, we recommend that you bring a parent, friend, sibling, or another close family member with you. When it comes to making plans for the future, it’s always good to have support. Have someone you trust by your side for moral support! We also suggest bringing something to take notes with, as well as transcripts and ID in case you decide to enroll on the spot.
What to Ask
A tour is the perfect time to ask questions and receive real-time answers. Here are a few suggestions for things to ask:
- How long does the program take to complete?
- What skills and techniques can I learn?
- What equipment/products do I need for this program?
- What are the educators like?
- How would you describe your school’s culture?
- How is the curriculum formatted?
- Can I practice on real people?
- Will I get support after graduation?
- What percent of students graduate?
- What percent of students pass the state licensing exam?
These are just some examples of questions you could ask on a tour. During this time, you can ask anything that comes to mind. When you have the right information, it’ll be easier to make an educated decision for the future.
Getting the Most Out of Your Tour
During a tour, it shouldn’t just be us asking you questions, or vice versa. This is the opportunity for us to get to know each other! We hope that every tour can be a back and forth conversation that’s valuable for both parties. Phone calls and emails are great for basic information, but nothing beats an in-person conversation. It’s the best way to get a feel for our students, educators, campus, and overall culture.
