Central State Beauty Academy began training in cosmetology related careers upon receiving licensure by the Oklahoma State Board of Cosmetology in 1975. The school was originally located in southwest Oklahoma City, relocating to 8494 NW Expressway in 1991 to provide additional space for its growing student population. In October 2014, the school’s name was changed to Central State Beauty And Wellness College and licensure was obtained from the Oklahoma Board of Private Vocational Schools (OBPVS). Later the same year, in an effort to expand program offerings, the college submitted application for accreditation by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). Central State Beauty and Wellness College fulfilled ACCSC’s requirements for institutions seeking initial accreditation and was recognized as a 2014-2015 ACCSC School of Excellence.
The college’s continued growth, combined with a mission to diversify program offerings, motivated the decision to custom design and build a new campus as well as change the schools name to Central Oklahoma College. In April 2017, Central Oklahoma College moved its entire facility to 14820 Serenita Ave, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and currently offers educational training in Barber, Basic Cosmetology, Esthetician, Massage Therapy, Medical Assistant, and Surgical Technologist programs. In July of 2019, the school expanded their program offerings to include Practical Nursing. In 2021, Central Oklahoma College began to offer a Master Instructor program, as well as courses in Laser Technology.
Central Oklahoma College is committed to our core values of Education, Wellness, Community, Integrity and Innovation, so that we may create a well-balanced institution that provides career focused education to our students leading to gainful employment.
