PREFACE
The present concept of finishing school is vastly different from
its origins. In today’s world a finishing school is defined as :
“ A private school for students that emphasizes training in all
round personality development, cultural and social activities.
Specific skill sets may be imparted as value addition. The name
reflects that it also follows the standard educational
techniques and is intended to complete the educational
experience. It could be in the form of a short course or as a
one-year curriculum”.
In the early part of the twentieth century, finishing school was
a common perception in which young ladies were trained
about top-class rules of etiquette and basic manners.
Intellectuals were considered relative at such schools, with a
primary focus on personality development.
As this concept grew less popular in the second half of the
twentieth century, there was a decline in finishing school.
Women’s roles and presence in society evolved, and public
schools became increasingly important. Finishing schools
resurfaced in the last decade of the twentieth century, but
with a new perception and business strategy.
The concept of Finishing Schools was reintroduced just after
the 1990s, and with an entirely different worldview and
commercial strategy. These are currently regarded as a
location wherein children receive specialist skills to improve
their personalities.
Importance of a Finishing School
Theoretical learning and understanding of concepts of
literature should not be the sole purpose of education.
Education has the goal of improving and polishing a
person’s personality. This is where the significance of
finishing school comes into play. A finishing school is
based on this philosophy and provides pupils with a
comprehensive educational experience. It aids pupils in
meeting the following critical criteria:-
• Value Education
• Skill Development
• Personality Development
VALUE EDUCATION
Our personal and professional lives are inextricably
linked by our ethics and values. Our morals shape who
we are as individuals and leave an influence on others.
A person’s morals might also be influenced by the
culture from which they come. One cannot judge a
person’s morals directly to determine if they are correct
or incorrect.
There are some widely acknowledged morals that every
human should adhere to. Completing school aids in the
installation of these ideals and morals in students.
Students are educated about unethical or immoral
actions, and they are made aware of the negative
aspects of society.
PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT
The sum of our life experiences, influences, and
education constitutes our personality. It is also
influenced by the choices and decisions we make. Our
personality is a composite of our views, ideologies,
values, and expectations, as well as our overall
activities. While our family and society have a huge
influence on our personalities, schools and education
play a vital impact as well.
A finishing school focuses on the psychological and
physiological components of personality development.
It is thought that the things we are exposed to, as well
as the influences we acquire from mentors and guides,
can alter our personalities. Finishing schools offer a
variety of programs to meet the needs of individual
pupils. Personality development programs can help
people enhance their social interaction and
communication abilities, as well as their body language,
work, and social life etiquette, and so on.
SKILL DEVELOPMENT
Skills have become a necessary component of today’s
society. Technical skill improvement can aid a person’s
career chances. Domain-specific or broad skills are also
possible. Many industries and educational institutions
nowadays place a greater emphasis on an individual’s
skills rather than their theoretical knowledge and
education.
A skill development program may not be included in the
curriculum of public schools. Technical skill
development is stressed heavily in finishing school. An
individual student’s potential and interests are assessed
first, and then skills are transmitted accordingly. Every
individual is required to have a set of fundamental
talents. Communication skills, writing skills,
observation, and perception skills, and so on are among
them.
In a finishing school, special programs are developed to
help pupils develop such skills. These are also referred
to as general abilities. In finishing school, domain
specific skills are also taught based on a student’s
interest and potential. Graphic design, development,
and coding are only a few examples.
In general, finishing school better prepares a student for
college and work life. It addresses several important
features and characteristics in life. To improve the
proficiency of their courses, several schools have
adopted the type of school model. The cost of these
schools is determined by several factors, including
infrastructure, quality, and location. It provides the best
opportunities for a comprehensive educational
experience.
