Considered the Harvard of Private Service Education, Starkey International Institute for Household Management is now celebrating its 40th year. Mrs. Starkey began in 1981 by coining the title Household Manager. She has worked diligently her entire career to help create a profession of service; in other words, Household 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.
Today, Starkey is 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 95 percent success rate. Our Publishing Company has penned five Service Management Publications for our students and our clients. 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.
