Cosmetology Program STUDENT


The best part about my experience at MKGBBA is the support I’ve received all the way from the Director and staff, to the educators, down to my fellow students. Having a support system both professionally and personally is so important and knowing that there’s always someone to help and listen to me with whatever I may need, whether it’s school related or not, has made this an unparalleled education experience.


Cosmetology Program STUDENT


“I chose to come to this school because the moment I stepped in this building it felt like home. Everyone made you me feel welcomed like I was already a student. I have never been anywhere that had so many friendly and professional people. All the staff and teachers are just so amazing! They all help us learn everything we need and are always there for us. I am PROUD to be a student here and am ready to take on the future with everything I learn from the Michael K. Galvin Beauty and Business Academy!”
