About Our School

This TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy is owned by Penn Commercial, Inc. and is housed in a learning center located in the Washington's Oak Spring Plaza. Penn Commercial began as a business school in Washington, Pennsylvania, in June 1929. Over its more than 80 years of existence, Penn Commercial has provided quality educational programs to job-seeking community members. Since founded in 1929 and incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1979, Penn Commercial has expanded and broadened its programs and facilities to meet the ever-changing requirements and needs of students and businesses alike.

In response to the evolving need for skilled workers, the Washington Institute of Technology was founded and licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Private Licensed Trade Schools Board in 1969, beginning its first class with three electronics students. For more than 20 years, the Washington Institute of Technology provided quality training in the electronics; drafting; and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning fields. In 1991, the Washington Institute of Technology merged with Penn Commercial to become one entity.

After growing enrollment and the desire to continue to contribute to the educational growth of the community, Penn Commercial purchased a building located in the Oak Spring Plaza in Washington, Pennsylvania, in May 2001. The school immediately began renovations on the 63,000 square feet the school would occupy. The new facility provided many benefits for the students including state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, a licensed in-house day care center, classrooms located on one floor, and free ample parking for all students, staff, and visitors. The new Penn Commercial opened its doors to students in September 2001 and was officially introduced into the community with a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 24, 2001.
