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.
I am now the proud owner of Serenity Salon & Spa an 1800 square foot facility in St. Augustine, Florida. I really owe all of this to International Academy for giving me the education that allowed me to make this dream come true.
. . . I began working in the field of beautification as a professional licensed Barber three years ago. This is the job for me, I've grown a clientele that is similar to my viewpoints, humor, and generally good people that you want to surround yourself with. This has by far been the best decision of my life professionally for my mental health, financial security, and general happiness. I never saw it coming and couldn't be happier for it.
. . . 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!
Besides career placement our staff is ready to assist you with other services that will help you achieve your career goals. As a student ongoing assistance is provided in the following areas: Car pooling, Study Buddies, Graduation and more. Whatever you need, we are here to help!
