Miss Vera’s Finishing School For Boys Who Want To Be Girls

Celebrating 25 years of Education, Transformation, & Re-Creation

Welcome to the online home of Miss Vera’s Finishing School For Boys Who Want To Be Girls, the world’s first transgender academy and most dynamic transformation experience. We are located in New York City but known across the globe.

I am Veronica Vera, your dean of students, founder and author. Miss Vera’s was created in the early 90’s to serve the needs of the thousands of people presenting as men who have the desire to break through gender barriers and explore their feminine options, some for a day, others for a lifetime. Happily, more and more couples also call upon me to share my knowledge and guide them to deeper levels of understanding and trust. Providing both a learning experience and a pampering session, I and my faculty of expert and caring deans are here for you. And we expect you to be the best you can be. We’ve become so popular that non-trans (cis) women, too, flock to our doors.

What we look for in a student is enthusiasm and a desire to explore. We’ll supply the guidance, the wigs and the wardrobe in an uplifting environment. We also love to take you out and about to share your beauty in our wonderful city. With clothing as our props, we support you in your quest for freedom of expression, so that no matter what your fashion statement, you can be a happier, healthier, sexier human being. Our commitment is to style, from help with putting together your look or looks, as well as teaching you integrity of lifestyle.

Our academy motto is “Cherchez la femme”. In French, the verb “chercher” means “to look to” or “to look for”. It’s perfect for you, dear student, as you “look to” women for guidance and “look for” the woman inside of you. Allow your femmeself to open you up to the world, not isolate you from it. Our lessons are based on a philosophy I refer to as “Venus Envy.” I believe that for every woman who burned her bra, there is a man eager to wear one.

In the years since our Academy’s inception, multitudes of gender explorers have visited us from across the country and around the world. Thousands more have read my three academy books. The first bears the name, Miss Vera’s Finishing School for Boys Who Want To Be Girls, the second is Miss Vera’s Crossdress for Success. My brand new book is Miss Vera's Cross Gender Fun For All For All. For personally autographed copies, please click here. If you are ready to begin your academy transformation, I invite you to take a tour through our site to learn of the many ways you can participate. If you think you might like to visit us on campus, please download our enrollment application. Click for Course Descriptions and Tuition And Fees.

My Fabulous Day With Miss Vera

by Bianca

Bianca 8

I just needed to thank you. I had an absolutely fabulous day. For weeks I had been thinking up every possible reason why I should cancel, including that good old Catholic guilt that this was not something one should do. I was scared to death. But my experience was wonderful and I am so glad that I did it.

Until yesterday, I was really just a hairy guy in a dress. Only my wife had seen me like that. I would usually stay dressed for a few minutes, and then I was done. Y'all just made me feel so special. From the beginning, you treated me with respect. Once I arrived at the Academy, I didn't have a second thought more...

Amazing Grace: How to Walk, Sit and Pose in High Heels - A Walking Class for for All Genders

Take a private lesson or form your own group.

Due to popular demand, "How to Walk in High Heels" as well as, "How to Pose for Photos" may be taken as separate lessons, not part of a transformation package. The integrated group lessons are open to all serious students: crossdressers, transwomen and biofemmes or ciswomen (meaning women of non-trans experience), united for the same purpose. They are a delightful addition to our curriculum and an enlightening experience for all. more...

Spouses and Significant Others

Are you the wife or significant other (s.o.) whose man loves to wear a dress? There is so much more understood about the transgender phenomenon and crossdressing than was known at the time I created my academy. I encourage you not to live in the dark ages. Whether you crossdress or are the partner of someone who does, I can help. more...
