What an amazing person and awesome individual! I was honored to meet and spend a few minutes with her, can’t wait until she comes back for the next class!

Bring A Friend To School Day


Wednesday, May 21st will be our Bring A Friend to School Day.  If  you are a student and have a friend or family member that is interested in becoming a student of International Academy, bring them to class with you Wednesday.  They can shadow you in class and see if a career in the Beauty or Wellness Industry is for them.  They can also have the opportunity to meet with Financial Aid to discuss what Financial Aid they may be eligible for.

Everyone is welcome even if you don’t have a friend or family member attending.  Just call admissions at 386-767-4600 ext 224 or 231 to let us know you will be coming and you can spend the day in an International Academy classroom to observe the class and explore your career training options.

Advanced Makeup Artistry Program

Zombies have taken over International Academy!  Take a look at the awesome things our new Esthetics and Advanced Makeup Artistry students have been up to!  The class broke up into three teams, came up with a script and competed to create the Zombie character which was portrayed in the script.  The team that was most creative and who’s character closest resembled the scripts depiction won First Place!  The team of Kelly Parks, Eunice Balderas, and Kati Oddie told home first place.  Check out the rest of the competition and more awesome photos of the creativity in this class!
