Accreditation & Licensing


Ferrara’s Beauty School is accredited through the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). NACCAS is an independent national accrediting commission, which is recognized by the United States Department of Education. In order to become accredited, a school must set and maintain very rigorous standards with regard to their curriculum, school policies and regulations. What this means to each student is that you are attending a school that has been approved and recognized as meeting these national standards of educational performances. Accreditation is a measurement of assurance that the school delivers quality education.

What is Accreditation?
According to NACCAS:
"Accreditation means that a school has met national standards of educational performance that have been established by an impartial nongovernmental agency. The accrediting of schools by professional, national and regional associations of like schools has been the most authoritative and reliable index of a school’s education. A school becomes accredited by formal action of the Commission. It bases its action on information submitted by the school and the reports of a specially appointed inspection team that has visited the school and evaluated it according to established standards."
