“. . . After many years as a practicing lawyer and not yet ready to retire, I decided to re-visit the skincare business. Being an active octogenarian I enrolled at the International Academy, a private school, graduated, and obtained my state license as an esthetician. IA is a fabulous school, providing interesting classes, patient teachers, and an overall pleasant [experience]. I have been actively working in a salon in Florida and loving every minute of it. Who says you can’t learn a new skill and start a new career at 80!” – Tanya

I escaped East Berlin Germany to the USA to follow my dreams. I discovered International Academy. It was the best decision I ever made! After graduating I have since bought my own salon and ran it for the past 10 years with 9 employees. I owe it all to International Academy for all their experience and training. I highly recommend this wonderful school for a life changing experience. Always follow your dreams!
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!
I searched for six months looking for a school where I could learn cosmetology and fully learn esthetics in the same place. When I finally found International Academy, I thought it was too good to be true. The Administration was so caring and attentive to anything that I needed to make my transition to Daytona and into school as easy as possible. Also, the facilities at International Academy are amazing! The equipment and products that we trained with are of the highest quality. The equipment in the school spa is more up-to-date and high-tech than many of the professional spas out there today. I feel like International Academy has thoroughly prepared me to be one of the best in the beauty industry!
We are proud to be associated with the International Academy.
