GREENVILLE, NC – Alexander Paul Institute of Hair Design wins 2022 Golden School Award for Placement!
Each year, the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) hosts the Golden School Awards to recognize excellence in cosmetology education.
This year, Alexander Paul Institute was the overall WINNER of the 2022 Golden School Award for Placement.
In 2021, the inaugural year of the awards, Alexander Paul Institute won the Finalist position in the Placement category, meaning we came in 2nd Place.
In back-to-back years, our school has won awards for placement. The awards recognized the school for it’s activities that contribute to great job placement.
The 2021 award took into account the school’s 2019 placement rate of 100% for Cosmetology. The 2022 award took into account the school’s 100% placement rate for Cosmetology and Esthetics in 2020. Rates for 2021 are scheduled to be released in January.
Further, Alexander Paul Institute did not exclude any graduates from placement rates due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. Because of the pandemic, our accreditor put in place certain exemptions for students unable to obtain employment as a result of the pandemic. Our school didn’t utilize the exemptions because all 2020 graduates in the cohort obtained employment and were placed!
