International Academy is not just a school for me, they became my family. Even when I visit as a graduate, I feel like I am visiting my family. Since Graduation, I have been employed with Great Clips and love my career. I am beginning Management training there and I owe it all to the training I received at International Academy. They truly exceeded my expectations!

International Academy provided me with a strong educational and professional foundation in which I have been able to build upon. My goal has been to elevate myself and others to new levels of success and to show cosmetology graduates that anything is possible in our industry.
