Announcing Starkey China

Starkey ChinaStarkey International has reached agreements with China's largest household service organization, China Home Services Association, and Gaoyang Vocational Education Development Center which is working with top universities to provide Starkey education and curriculum throughout China. This would allow Starkey International to engage in the training and education of Chinese household service professionals through mutual cooperation. Gaoyang center was established in 2003 and was one of the earliest entities that helped introduce international programs into China.

These efforts were made possible by Starkey International and Gaoyang's vision for quality service in China. Working with Starkey, Gaoyang will be launching training programs for Butlers, Housekeepers and other related household service specialties by mid 2013.

The Best of the Best

Mary Starkey TeachesMrs. Mary Louise Starkey is the Founder of the U.S. household /estate management profession, and has been the torchbearer of Private Service for over thirty years.  She is referred to as the “First Lady of Service”!  As Starkey International was the first Institute for Household Management, we have Set the Standard for the industry!  Our programs are now imitated, but never duplicated, by other schools in the USA, Canada, and Europe

Our educational courses and placement expertise have been fine tuned over many years, thereby proving our commitment to the Service Management Profession.  We are considered a hybrid of sophisticated education in Household and Service Management.  We have been positioned at the Master’s Degree level of education by our college administrative colleagues.  We have focused on quality as opposed to quantity, and have continued to develop progressive and inspirational curriculum serving a highly varied American marketplace.  Our Placement strategies have also been proven to be genuine and highly successful.  We have published multiple text books, including our 704 page Original Guide to Private Service Management and others for both our Clientele and our Students, and patented our own “state of the art” Software, StarkeyHQ Service Management Software.

Unrivaled for 30 Years

Starkey International Institute for Household ManagementConsidered the Harvard of Private Service Education, Starkey International is now celebrating its 30th year.   Mrs. Starkey began in 1981 by coining the title Household Manager.  She has worked diligently her entire career to help create service as a profession; thus, Household Service Management.  She brought agencies, international schools, veteran Estate Managers, Butlers, and Military Enlisted Aides together for 10 years at Restoring the Art (RTA) conferences to help grow the industry.  RTA has also become Starkey’s Student Financial Assistance 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.  We are proud that our student financing has experienced only a 2% default rate.

Today we are considered a highly sophisticated Service Management education corporation teaching the art form of Private Service.  We are a state-approved vocational institute.  We are also a seasoned Placement Corporation, placing our new and veteran Service Graduates with a 90% success rate.  Our Publishing Company has penned five Service Management Publications for our Students and our Employer Clientele, along with our state of the art HQ Service Management Software.  We house Starkey in a classical and registered historical mansion, built in 1901. This 13,000 square foot high-end private residence is where students are invited to reside while in training and where we conduct our Service Management Programs.
