Courses Offered


Anthony's School of Floral Designs of Texas At San Antonio offers two main courses, a basic fundamental hobbyist course and an intense professional course, which thoroughly encompasses the study of floral arranging and the floral business aspect of the industry.

The basic fundamental course is two weeks long and includes 30 hours of class instruction at three hours per day during which time a student is exposed to about 20 arrangements. This course is structured for the hobbyist and covers arrangements that a person might normally use at home.

The intense professional course is three weeks long and includes 60 hours of class instruction at four hours per day during which time a student is exposed to about 40 arrangements. This course is an intense professional course covering the study of the floral arranging and related business aspects of the floral industry and it is recommended for any person seriously interested in the study of floral arranging or any person wanting to work in the floral industry or any person wanting to open a floral business. Both of these courses start with the basics and are designed for any person who has no formal training in the floral industry.

Payments

If a student elects the payments plan one-third of the cost of the course is due on the first day of class. The second payment of one-third is due on the second Monday of class with the final payment of the one-third balance due on the third Monday of class. Please be advised that students failing to keep up with school tuition might not be allowed in class and may have grades withheld from the student until the student's tuition has been paid in full.

Class Materials


The cost of tuition includes flowers, foliages, containers, floral supplies and floral accessories, which remain property of the school, however students will be provided with a floral knife, floral tape, booklets and floral literature that students may keep.  Students must purchase the school textbooks, "Floral Designs, The Art of Designing with Flowers",  and "Wedding Guide" and "The Indoor Gardner".  All books are available at the school and may be purchased before a student begins class if they choose. These book are not included in the cost of the school tuition. Students are advised to bring to class a small cloth hand-towel to keep their area clean and dry. It is recommend, however not mandatory, that students bring a camera to class so that they may take pictures of their arrangements. These pictures may be used for study material and future reference material for students. This is also an excellent opportunity for students to begin a portfolio of their work.

Graduation Pre-requisites


Only students who have successfully completed the intense course with a passing average  grade will receive a diploma as evidence the student's successful training work and accomplishment. A student's tuition must also be completely paid in full in order to receive a diploma. It is extremely important that students paying with checks or credit cards pay with plenty of time so that these monetary methods of payment will have plenty of time to clear in order for the student to receive their diploma by the time they have completed the class course. Students absent or missing more than three days while attending this class will be ineligible to pass this class course. It is within the discretion of the instructor if he elects to make up these missed dates with the student. If the instructor elects to make up these missed dates with a student, there will be an additional cost for each class day made up. The instructor is in class every day that a student is supposed to be in class. Floral materials and programs are prepared in advance for each student, so a day missed by a student is still counted as a class day, it is therefore imperative that a student attend every class day. If the instructor is absent or misses a class day, that day will be made up by the instructor at no additional cost to the student.

Job Placement


The school offers job placement only to students who have successfully completed the intense professional course with a passing average  grade and who have paid  their school tuition in full. Placement is also based on the student's attendance, professional attitude and seasonal job availability. The student must request this assistance and there are no guarantees of placement. We offer this as a service as available. The school does not charge for this service, however, the school does have a 95% placement success rate in this area.
