TPI was founded in 1988 as America Duran Skin Care, Massage & Nail School, a private vocational school to provide training in the art of Skin Care. In 1991, the institution expanded its scope of career education to include a Therapeutic Massage Training Program for state licensure by the Florida Board of Massage.

In 1994, America Duran Skin Care, Massage & Nail School received national accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and transfer its membership in 1995, to the Commission on Occupational Education Institutions (COEI), now known as Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE).

In 1999 a change in ownership took place and the institution has been renamed The Praxis Institute.

Throughout the past years the focus of our institution has remained constant: to provide career education in employable fields for the community.
