PCC Barber School at Altitude Academy


For the eighth straight year, Pitt Community College barber students will provide free haircuts and school supplies to children in grades K-12 as part of their program’s “50 Free” event.

Scheduled for Aug. 22, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at PCC’s Barber School at Altitude Academy, “50 Free” will ensure youngsters are looking their best when the new school year begins. The goal, says Instructor Rodney Bullock, is to provide at least 50 free haircuts, 50 free backpacks and a variety of school supplies. He said school supply donations would be accepted until the day of the event.

Located on Charles Boulevard in Greenville, PCC’s Barber School at Altitude Academy introduces students to the field of barbering and the wide scope of styling it encompasses. It’s a 12-month program in which students complete 1,528 hours of barbering theory and application, as required by the N.C. Board of Barber Examiners. Upon successful completion, students must complete a 12-month apprenticeship under the tutelage of an established, registered barber.
