New Cosmetology Program from CDC

Any students who are interested in studying Cosmetology through the Career Development Center (CDC) should attend the Information Night on Thursday, February 1, 2018. BVSD has partnered with SVVS to offer our students Cosmetology through Boulder TEC at the Arapahoe Campus. The advantage to this situation is that students will be able to apply as 10th graders because Boulder Tec does offer a full Cos program with Hair, Skin, and Nails. The disadvantage is that students will need to provide their own transportation to the campus.

There will be a “Showcase Night” for the Cos program on February 1st, from 5-7 PM at the Boulder Campus. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Any questions about the program should be directed to the CDC Counselor, Becky Olson: olson_becky@svvsd.org
