Cutting Edge

The Cutting Edge Style Academy name has changed to GateWay Community College and will be offered at our Deer Valley Campus near 29th Avenue and Bell Road, just west of  I-17, and Surprise Campus located on Civic Center Plaza in Surprise. Both locations provide a premiere cosmetology education for high school students. In our unique school, students complete their high school courses while simultaneously training in the 1600 hour Cosmetology Certificate Program. Since July 2007, the program has served over thousands of West Valley teens in state-of-the-art cosmetology career training. 

The Cosmetology program is offered in partnership with West-MEC. We are proud to also partner with valley salons and spas to enhance the student experience and provide job opportunities for our graduates.
