We began in 2002, when our family owners purchased a cosmetology school in Lebanon, Tennessee. The school had 15 students and one course.
Today, Genesis Career College has over 500 students enrolled in mostly small-town campuses across the southeast. And instead of one program, we offer nine, including entry careers in healthcare and beauty & wellness.
At GCC, our mission is to attract qualified students, instruct them with quality education and training and prepare them for career occupations in their respective fields. We place "respect for the rights of the individual" at the forefront of our philosophy. We strive to provide a work environment which allows for enhancement of our service to our employees, our students and our patrons
Almost all of our occupations require licensing by the state, and we prepare you – in a year or less – to be qualified and ready to take state exams. Plus, when possible, we enhance classroom and hands-on training with real-world experience and externships that help students become more desirable to potential employers and to excel.
As a family owned school, we understand that furthering your education is often a financial decision that affects your parents, the family you already have, or the one you hope to have one day.
Our mission is to make Genesis a school where students who need student loans, borrow from the right place: the U.S. government, not private lenders whose loans often come with higher interest rates and the inclusion of questionable service fees.
This helps to ensure that an education at Genesis doesn’t cost more than it needs to, and that you come out ahead, faster.
Our philosophy: Genesis should be the right decision for our enrollees and their families, both academically and financially, both today and long-term.
