TPS barber academy launches at Scott High School

If you’re in need of a quick buzz cut, students at Scott High School may be able to help you out. A new program at Scott High School is helping students who may not be taking the traditional college route after high school

The school is now officially offering a track for those who may want to be barbers after high school. This semester there are 12 students in the program and school officials are excited for the participation.

Students who are in the program will be able to earn 1800 credit hours starting their junior year. The credits will allow them to take their state board tests and get their license, which will set them up to get a job right out of high school.

Instructors in this program say it gives students the chance to see if barbering is for them and if it is it then sets them up for success upon graduation.
