The American Academy of Health & Beauty is dedicated to creating a culture and atmosphere of workforce professionalism. At orientation a student information packet detailing school policies and procedures will be issued to each student. As with the workplace, every student is required to comply with all the rules and regulations of the Academy- as they would with any employer. Failure to do so may result in suspension or dismissal without a refund of any tuition payments.
The American Academy of Health & Beauty will not tolerate:
- The use of alcoholic beverages or narcotics on the premises or any form of consumption of alcoholic beverages or use of narcotics during the work day.
- Any smoking in public areas- all smoking is confined to a specific nominated areas well clear of the Academy building. This also includes vaping which is not allowed inside the school.
- Any disrespect towards any staff, instructors, students, or guests- as with the workplace, this behavior will not be tolerated.
- Excessive absences and/or tardiness and as with the workplace, continued absences and tardiness will constitute a reason for disciplinary action and possible dismissal.
A failure to comply with these Academy and workplace behaviors will lead to verbal and written warning and possibly dismissal depending on the severity of the incident. As with the workplace professional behavior at the Academy is required at all times. Again, as with the workplace, any behavior detrimental to the best interests of the Academy (or for an employer) such as cheating, theft, abusive language, poor anger management or a failure to interact positively with staff and fellow students will result in suspension or expulsion from the Academy.
