Always Relevant

At The Virginia Barber School, students become life-long learners. Our academic program instills the knowledge they will need to excel in the Barbering profession.


Our classes achieve excellence because we employ a wide repertoire of teaching and learning strategies, and students are actively involved in the learning process. Our stimulating classes draw upon students' strengths and encourage them to push themselves to the outer limits of their abilities.


Voluntary extracurricular activities, such as cutting the homeless for the holidays, enable students to apply the material they learn in class to a real-life situation. Teachers provide ideas and motivate students to take the initiative. In this way, students exercise their creativity and learn to set goals for themselves.
