SCHOLARSHIP
CSHS HAS A SMALL NUMBER OF SCHOLARSHIPS OFFERED THROUGH OUR BUSINESS AFFILIATES AND OUR IN-HOUSE ESSENTIAL OIL SALES. THESE SCHOLARSHIPS ARE RESERVED FOR STUDENTS IN THE ROOTS OF HERBALISM PROGRAM AND THE COMMUNITY HERBALIST PROGRAM. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR FURTHER INFORMATION. THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR STUDENTS FUND THEIR EDUCATION THROUGH PRIVATE MEANS.

STUDENT CONDUCT
STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO ARRIVE TO CLASS ON TIME AND READY TO LEARN. STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE SELF-MOTIVATED, RESPONSIBLE, AND RESPECTFUL OF OTHER STUDENTS, FACULTY, THE FACILITY, AND THE GROUNDS. STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO BEHAVE ETHICALLY, WHICH INCLUDES TREATING ALL MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY WITH RESPECT. PRIVACY, CONFIDENTIALITY, AND SAFETY OF THE STUDENTS, TEACHERS, AND CLIENTS MUST BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES. DRUGS, ALCOHOL, AND WEAPONS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE SCHOOL PROPERTY.

CERTIFICATION
WE OFFER A CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION FOR ALL OF OUR LONG-TERM COURSES (ROOTS OF HERBALISM, COMMUNITY HERBALIST PROGRAM, HANDCRAFTED HERBALISM AND BODY SYSTEMS). CURRENTLY IN THE US THERE IS NO GOVERNING BODY OR LICENSING AGENCY FOR HERBALISTS. THEREFORE THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A “CERTIFIED HERBALIST”, AT LEAST NOT IN THE SENSE THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE PUBLIC THINKS OF THE TERM ‘CERTIFIED’ (SUCH AS MASSAGE THERAPISTS, OR ESTHETICIANS). THERE ARE BOTH PROS AND CONS TO THIS BUT REGARDLESS IT IS IMPORTANT, IN THE NAME OF CLARITY AND HONESTY, TO NOTE THAT OUR CERTIFICATE, AND THAT OF ALL HERBAL SCHOOLS, ARE REFLECTIONS OF THE STAFF AND DIRECTORS OF THE SCHOOL ITSELF AND NOT A STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATION FROM A UNIFYING BOARD.

JOBS AND PLACEMENT
DESPITE THE LACK OF OFFICIAL CERTIFICATION. HERBALISM IS A RAPIDLY GROWING FIELD. ITS POPULARITY IS CROSSING INTO MANY SEGMENTS OF SOCIETY AND THE JOB MARKET. HERBAL STUDENTS ARE GRADUATING FROM SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND FINDING SUCCESSFUL AND FULFILLING WORK EACH YEAR. THE ARRAY OF POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS OF YOUR NEW SKILL SET IN THE JOB MARKET ARE ENDLESS. SOME POSSIBLE AREAS ARE:
HERBAL CLINICIAN/PRACTITIONER
WEAVING HERBALISM INTO AN ALREADY EXISTING HEALTH CARE PRACTICE
MARKETING ~ SALES ~ RETAIL
RESEARCH ~ SCIENCE , GMPS, QUALITY ASSURANCE
WRITING ~ EDITING ~ BLOGGING~ SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
