Our Story

The Etiquette School of Refined Minds, Inc. was founded by Camala Townsend in 2016 as an etiquette and life-skills trainer for Pre-k through College aged girls and boys. Her philosophy is that, “All children deserve the opportunity to have a great start in life, and put their best foot forward!” With the ever-growing economic challenges in the United States today, parents are finding themselves working more days and longer hours than usual! Etiquette Refined is a course that will lend a helping hand when preparing children for life’s greatest challenges. We will educate children, teens, and young adults in the importance of knowing the appropriate and polite way to engage with an individual, culture, group, or organization. Etiquette is simply the polite way to conduct oneself in any given environment. 

Etiquette Refined will prepare your child to represent themselves, their families, and later on in life, their organizations in a superior and dignified manner. Give your children a superior start in life! Invest in his or her ability to become the best person they can be! You will be confident that your child knows how to properly conduct themselves even when they are not with you.
