Career and Technical Education (CTE) Spotlight on Cosmetology


Today, we are featuring the NFA Cosmetology Program as we continue to celebrate National Career and Technical Education Month! 
 
Students that enter the Cosmetology and Barbering programs must complete the hours required to sit for the state licensing exam. In both programs the students will master the art of cutting hair, hair coloring, and chemical texture techniques. The New York State Board Requirements for Barbering and Cosmetology are practiced and mastered in both programs. Graduating students from these classes will have the knowledge and skills needed to pass the state boards. Integrated into the course curriculums is the mandatory hands-on application of skills and theory in both Barbering and Cosmetology so that students can meet the state hours of practice before taking the state exams. The student will have all skills necessary to pass a state examination. The programs will help prepare students for preparation for college and career opportunities within the field of aesthetics. 

 

Cosmetology scholars earn their hours through classwork, weekly clinics, and volunteer/service hours at Montefiore St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital, the Newburgh Armory Unity Center, and for school functions like the NFA Fashion Show and plays and musicals. Scholars have also competed to show off their talents! During the pandemic, Cosmetology teachers delivered necessary supplies and equipment, so scholars could continue to learn from home.  

Cosmetology teachers include Ms. Leanne Paganelli and Ms. Maria Lastowski. 

Scholars in the Cosmetology pathway will take courses: Intro to Cosmetology, Cosmetology I and Lab, Cosmetology II and Lab in addition to their high school curriculum.
