Etiquette for Young Ladies is as fun as it is educational. Empowering young ladies with manners, social skills, poise and style will allow them to be more confident in social settings, to understand their potential and to feel good about themselves.

 

This 6-week course teaches social etiquette, table manners, personal grooming and skin care and more. Classes are taught conversational style which involves everyone in discussion for easy learning. This program teaches young ladies social and life skills through interactive exercises and illustrated keepsake workbooks, in a safe classroom style environment, and is free of charge to partcipants. 

 

We had a successful Open House reception on April 3rd 2016 to welcome prospective students, and provide information to the public about applying for the program. Parents and friends of local elementary and middle schools as well as interested community members attended the event. If you missed it, and would like more information on the program, please feel free to contact us.
