What Makes Capri College SO Fabulous…

Tradition of Excellence – Over 50 Year Legacy

Experience matters in this industry, and Capri has been helping students get the training they need to enter the beauty business for over 50 years, and offering massage courses for over 25 years.

We didn’t just pop up yesterday, and have helped thousands of students launch creative careers, doing something they truly love.  We have been around this long because we never forget that our graduate’s success is our mission.

Ask local salons about the reputation we have built.  Go ahead…Ask anyone!  We work hard to stay progressive and forward thinking in our offerings. For more on the history of Capri College, check out the Capri History page.

Career Focused Education

Our curriculum is designed with your future in mind.  The level of hands-on, the comprehensive subjects we include in our advanced classes, and the family atmosphere; all directed toward your goal of becoming a beauty/wellness professional.  You could complete in as little as 8 months!

Family Owned & Operated – Feel Part of the Family

At Capri, you’re part of the family, valued as a contributing member of the school, and not just a number. As a family-owned school, we control the direction of the school and can respond to industry changes and make adjustments to our programs quickly (i.e. we added iPads for online education long before most other schools of our kind, and try to stay ahead of trends like the growing demand for Men’s clipper cuts and Thai Massage).  We are also not controlled by (or limited to) one product manufacturer, like some franchise schools.

Real World Experience in our Student Salon

As a Capri student, you’ll be working with real clients in our open-to-the-public, on-site student salons. Under the guidance of licensed instructors, you’ll help real clients and provide high-quality beauty services.  The more real clients you practice on, the more confident and prepared you will be to enter the professional world.  That is why we focus on this aspect.

Field Trips – Salon & Spa Tours + Beauty Show

We know great beauty education doesn’t happen entirely inside the classroom. You’ve got to get out and see what’s going on in leading area salons and spas. As a Capri student you’ll get the chance to tour salons and spas, and attend America’s Beauty Show in Chicago. Field trips and industry events allow you to get a feel for different areas of the business before you graduate so you can tailor your job search to best fit you and your interests.

Small Class Sizes

At Capri, we keep class sizes small so you get the time and personal attention you deserve. We maintain a 15 to 1 student to teacher ratio or better at all times to ensure you’re able to pick up concepts quickly in a supportive environment. You’ll be able to create a personal relationship with your instructor.

Tight-Knit Community – Get Support & Make Friends

As a Capri student, you’re part of a community of like-minded, style-savvy and creative individuals. You share class with the same classmates throughout your program, so you can feel comfortable learning and growing at the same pace. You’ll also have the chance to make some amazing friends along the way.

Free Hair & Spa Services!

Feel pampered and treated like royalty. See just what your clients experience during high-end salon and spa treatments plus look and feel great at the same time!

Give Back to the Community

As a Capri student, you’ll have the chance to give back through fun events and community involvement. At Capri you’re part of something bigger than yourself. Giving back to the community allows you a chance to help improve the lives of others while working toward a brighter future for yourself. To learn more, check out Capri Cares.


Capri College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). That means our programs are held to specific standards by an objective third party. Being accredited also means we may be approved to offer Federal Financial Aid to help cover the cost of your educational investment if you qualify.

Everything Included

At Capri, you never have to worry about hidden fees or extra expenses. Everything you’ll need, from your professional equipment kit to uniform, books, and even your licensing exam fee is included (kit/books need not be purchased from Capri, if student chooses)!  Additionally, we do not charge overtime tuition, as some other schools (extra charges for attending past scheduled graduation date). We believe in being upfront and honest; helping you to plan for your expenses.

iPad Included in Your Kit

Capri is dedicated to staying up-to-date and taking full advantage of modern technology where it’s beneficial. As a Capri student you’ll receive an iPad as part of your kit. Access convenient online learning materials and get up-to-the-minute updates. The iPad, yours to keep after graduation, can be a great tool as you train for and build your beauty career.

Business Training

You’ll feel confident and fully prepared to pursue your career to the fullest after gaining practical, real-world business training. In addition to the technical styling and beauty skills, you’ll get the specific salon/spa business education it takes to turn your passion and talent into a sustainable career. Many beauty professionals even go on to open their own salon or spa.

Two Weeks to Try Us Our Before Committing!

We want you to be here because you love it, not because you feel financially stuck. You can feel confident you made the right choice after getting a feel for our school, before being committed to tuition charges.
