San Pedro

In March of 1987, S.W. School of Business & Technical Careers purchased the assets of Johnson’s Beauty College which was located at 402 E. Travis, San Antonio, Texas. Johnson’s, one of the state’s oldest beauty colleges, had been in continued operation in downtown San Antonio for well over 20 years.

The school was occupying a leased facility of approximately 7,000 square feet.

In January 1993, the school was relocated to a newer, more spacious facility just one half block east of the original location.

In 2003, the Travis campus was relocated to the current location prompted by the need to provide parking for students, staff, and floor clients. Additionally, the new location was planned and developed to accommodate an increase in student population.

In December 2006, the school opened a branch facility at 122 W. North St., Uvalde, Texas.

In April 2007, the school opened a second branch facility at 1305 Commercial, San Antonio, Texas. This location is closed now.

In May 2010, S.W. School of Business & Technical Careers was purchased by EDCO SYSTEMS, L.P.

In June 2014 S.W. School of Business & Technical Careers changed its name to Nuvani Institute.

Eagle Pass

S.W. School of Business & Technical Careers, Eagle Pass was organized in January 1985, as a branch campus of S.W. School, San Antonio. On September 6, 1989, the Eagle Pass campus was approved as a main campus.

Located at 265 Jefferson, in the heart of Downtown Eagle Pass, the original facility consisted of approximately 4000 square feet. In 1987, the curriculum was expanded to include computer training by offering the General Office Skills/Computer Concepts and Nursing Assistant Programs. With the enrollment increasing and the approval of the Cosmetology Programs, the school moved to its present location at 272 Commercial. The new location is two city blocks from the original facility and contains 13,000 square feet of classroom and administrative office space that enables us to serve our students well.

On February 1, 1996, a branch campus was established in Del Rio, Texas. The Campus consisted of 3800 square feet of space and was licensed by the Texas Cosmetology Commission to offer training programs in the beauty culture field.

The demand for training programs in Nursing Assistant and General Office Skills with computers in Del Rio, along with the limited space at the 1909 Avenue “F” location, prompted the Administrators to acquire a larger facility. The new branch facility located at 801 S. Main, in the heart of Downtown Del Rio, consisting of approximately 9000 square feet was acquired in May 1996.

On May 1, 2009, two branch campuses were established in Austin, Texas. The campuses are located at 801 E. William Cannon Dr., Suite 115, Austin, Texas and 14005 North Highway 183, Suite 1200, Austin, Texas. The 14005 location was closed and students merged with the 801 location.

On May 1, 2010, S.W. School of Business & Technical Careers was purchased by EDCO SYSTEMS, L.P.

In June 2014, S.W. School of Business & Technical Careers changed its name to Nuvani Institute.
