Courtesy, Social Confidence & More

So much more than which fork to use!

Welcome to Texas Etiquette Academy & Finishing School! We offer Social and Life Skills training programs for children and youth ages 5-20, as well as social clubs, parties and events. Manners are so much more than knowing what fork to use!

The world can be a difficult place, but we know that teaching young people what the expected and respected behaviors are in social settings, and giving them the knowledge and skills they need to be socially competent, boosts their confidence, builds self-esteem, and helps them present themselves more positively. Our programs cover important and practical life and social skills topics that girls of all ages need to be their very best selves!

About Us

Texas Etiquette Academy & Finishing School


Whatever happened to manners?” This is a question Misty Harris finds herself asking daily. Whether it’s driving, dining, or dealing with others in public places, disrespect is everywhere. Having lived on two continents and serving as a military spouse for over 20 years, Misty has seen a lot of situations that could make your hair stand on end.

For the past 8 years, Misty – a Candidate for Master ICTC Certification, and her team at Texas Etiquette has been offering training and services to address the growing impacts of low social competence and rudeness that are prevalent in our homes, schools, communities and workplaces. With a focus on boosting Social Intelligence, participants in Misty’s adult programs learn to leverage interpersonal skills and lead by example.

Through its new division, Texas Etiquette Academy & Finishing School, Misty’s polished and experienced team offers classes, camps, individual coaching and Train the Trainer, to encourage and inspire children to build social skills that research suggests underpin success in life and work.

“You can be part of the problem, or you can be part of the solution,” states Misty, “and choosing civility is the easiest, and most effective solution for addressing the current civility crisis.”

A mother of five, Misty works hard to practice what she preaches. She calls on her educational background in children’s programming and women’s health, and her experience training as a midwife and advocating for children with arthritis, to support and endorse volunteerism and community service.
