How We Rate Each Esthetician School

Here, at Esthetician Schooling, we strive to do our research so we can give you all the information you need to make an informed decision when choosing an esthetician school. That’s why we have created a five-star rating system that shows you:

  • Which esthetician schools have the most reasonable tuition cost.
  • Which esthetician schools offer you the most financial aid.
  • Which esthetician schools have the best on-time graduation rate.
  • Which esthetician schools have the best job placement record.
  • Which esthetician schools are accredited by the NACCAS.
  • Which esthetician schools are equipped with an in-school spa.

All of these factors should be taken into consideration when choosing an esthetician school. Other factors you may want to consider are class schedule flexibility, school location, and program length.

Tuition Cost

$0 – $5,528 = 5 Stars

$5,529 – $8,291 = 4 stars

$8,292 – $11,055 = 3 stars

$11,056 – $13,819 = 2 stars

$13,820 – $16,583 = 1 star

$16,584 or more = 0 stars

The average tuition for esthetician schools in Illinois is $11,055. Schools whose tuition is lower than $11,055 receive more than 3 stars. Schools whose tuition is higher than $11,055 receive less than 3 stars.

Financial Aid

50% or more = 5 stars

40% – 49% = 4 stars

30% – 39% = 3 stars

20% – 29% = 2 stars

10% – 19% = 1 star

0% – 9% = 0 stars

We’ve calculated the percentage of the tuition amount that students are able to finance using federal and private loans. Federal grants, state grants, and scholarships are not factored in.

Graduation Rate

81% – 100% = 5 stars

61% – 80% = 4 stars

41% – 60% = 3 stars

21% – 40% = 2 stars

11% – 20% = 1 star

0% – 10% = 0 stars

The graduation rate is based on the percentage of students who graduated on time. The graduation rate may be higher since some students may take longer to graduate than others.

Job Placement

81% – 100% = 5 stars

61% – 80% = 4 stars

41% – 60% = 3 stars

21% – 40% = 2 stars

11% – 20% = 1 star

0% – 10% = 0 stars

Many esthetician schools have a job placement assistance program that helps graduates secure a job. The higher a school’s job placement rate is, the more likely you are to find employment in your chosen field.

Accreditation

NACCAS Accreditation = 5 stars

No Accreditation = 0 stars




Schools that are accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts & Sciences (NACCAS) must meet a strict standard of academic quality in order to be certified. NACCAS accredited schools are more likely to provide students with a high quality esthetics education, comprehensive hands-on training, and the skills that make them highly employable.

In-School Spa

In-School Spa = 5 stars

No In-School Spa = 0 stars




Esthetician schools that have their own on-site spa in which the students are able to interact with real customers give the students a much more realistic “on-the-job” experience, preparing them for the job field. Students attending an esthetician school with no on-site spa are forced to practice their esthetic skills on mannequin heads or fellow students instead.
