Starkey greetings to our "family" and friends! We are wrapping up an exciting 2015 and looking forward to new offerings and opportunities in
First and foremost, we would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You and warm Holiday Wishes to all of our graduates, clients, and prospective
students. It is your support and belief in the value of Service that allows us to do the work we feel so passionately about.
We would like to congratulate our Graduates who have been placed in the fourth quarter of 2015 - Connie Heinrich (Philadelphia),
Kevin Stafford (Naples, FL), Travis Burton (Denver), Lamar Ramsey (Denver), Aurora Hernandez (Montecito, CA), Felipe Valls (Las Vegas),
James Roper (Chicago), Stuart Mettler (Chicago), Nana Khetaguri (New York City), and Brian Childs (Houston). Congratulations to Principals
As we look forward to 2016, we are expanding our course offerings and including short term "Intensive Training" courses to help our Graduates
and other household staff to hone their skills and, in some cases, acquire new skills. These programs are currently open for enrollment -
we encourage you to consider giving the Gift of Education, either to your staff or to yourself!
Our Culinary/Sommelier Intensive program will give students an in-depth look at preparing meals for the private home, managing pantries and
food inventories, and how to work on your Principal's agenda to meet their culinary needs. We will also look at Old World and New World wines,
participate in region-specific tastings, and discuss the marriage of food and wine. Students will also get an overview of wine cellar management,
software for managing inventory, and purchasing wine for the private home. Registration is now open for this wonderful course, taking place in
The Housekeeping/Laundry Intensive program will build on Graduate and other Household Staff's knowledge of zoning and task sheets to give a
more in-depth understanding of how to care for fine linens, specialty care surfaces, and high-end cleaning products. We will also look at
Valet skills - helping Principals pack for travel. This skill is highly sought after for Principals who travel frequently and need to know
that their belongings are being properly cared for in the travel process. Registration is now open for this February course offering!
