Find Your Second Chance at TSPA Altoona

Everyone deserves a second chance.

At The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Altoona we firmly believe that no matter what your history or background is, it is never too late to change your path. This goes for your education as well. If you have attended another school recently and found your educational journey cut short for one reason or another – it doesn’t have to be the end!

We have former college students come through our doors every day, ready to pursue their dreams and discover a second chance in their education. That is why we created the Second Chance Scholarship, to help support former college students in the investment toward a future that may have otherwise felt out of reach.

It’s Never the End

Did you feel like you were lost in a crowd? Or perhaps you felt like you were only a number and didn’t have value to your school? Did you feel lost and confused, without easy access to support and office staff to help answers your questions? Maybe you enjoyed some of your courses, but the further you got into your program you started to feel out of place and longed for a more cooperative environment?

Does any of this sound like you? Have any of these come to mind as you made your decision to pursue different opportunities?

There are many reasons that you may have found your previous education experience come to an end. No matter what your reason, At TSPA Altoona we understand! We are ready to help you find an education and career that you love, that helps you pursue that dream that you may have had to put on the back burner.

Find the Perfect Fit

“Choose a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life.”

There is a reason so many of our childhood dreams inspire us, why they fill our fantasies and often our future. Sometimes, we put these dreams aside in hopes of finding a career that we believe could provide us a more stable income, or we may choose a career that avoids the negative stigma that a pursuing our dreams may have. While many people may find a new passion as they travel their education journey, many others find themselves still longing for the career that they have dreamed of for years.

Finding that perfect fit in your career and in your life can truly make your education and your career one that you can find joy in for years to come.

If you love being creative and working with your hands, if you are longing for a cooperative atmosphere that supports you in your learning and looks at you as a person, and not as a number, we invite you to come tour the facility at The Salon Professional Academy, Altoona. We would love to speak with you about your dreams and show you how we work to support our students in an environment that lets them learn and grow into a beautiful future.
