About New England School of Protocol
New England School of Protocol aims to give every individual a strong foundation in social graces, dining etiquette and interpersonal skills. Our goal is to empower them with confidence and propel them towards personal and professional success. Communication is the most important key to leadership success. However research shows that in today’s age of social media, with a decrease of face-to-face conversations, interpersonal skills are on the decline. Social norms may have changed over time, but the basic rules of social protocol and manners have stayed the same. A person who has well refined social skills conveys confidence. This can create an appealing differentiator that sets himself or herself apart. At New England School of Protocol we aim to instill life skills, social consideration, and mutual respect as we believe that etiquette leads to civility in the home, school, and in the society that we live in.
