Founded in 2022, CHERRY Beauty Institute is a private school owned by Sherita Cherry. The institute's facility opened in Jonesboro, Georgia. Sherita Cherry is a graduate of Clark-Atlanta University and received her MBA from Western Governors University.  With 29 years of experience owning a salon and training over 20 stylists through her apprenticeship program, Sherita Cherry recognized a gap in financial literacy among beauty professionals. This led her to open CHERRY Beauty Institute, aiming to educate future beauty professionals in accounting, marketing, branding, and business management. Sherita's goal is to instill confidence in her students, focusing on both beauty education and business skills, to prepare them for success in the beauty industry and beauty business.

CHERRY Beauty Institute is licensed and regulated by the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology.  The license is displayed in the school office.
