If you are looking to enroll in a cosmetology or esthetician program, look no further than JDacademy in Danville! From the moment I walked in to check the school out prior to enrolling to the moment I graduated from the Esthetics program, I know that I got the absolute best education possible. It was by far the best school I've toured in the Bay Area.

Mimi D. Former Student

Mrs. Shirley is an instructor and mentor who fully embodies the true meaning of the words. Not only did I receive the curated curriculum developed by JD, Mrs. Shirley found meaningful, insightful and practical ways to include her years of masterful experience into my personal learning. Her hands-on style of teaching and mentoring helped me define and design my own style, technique and brand that captures the true essence of the Aesthetician I want to continue to become. It is a great honor and privilege to have learned from and to continue to learn from Mrs. Shirley. I truly value her care, her compassion, her mastery of the craft and passion to ensure she is doing what she can to give back to students and professionals like myself. Thank you, Mrs. Shirley

I was so fortunate to attend JD Academy. I had toured other schools and JD was exactly what I needed. Small class size, more one on one with instructors, open door policy. It became my second home. My education was top notch... even in areas I didn't think I cared about... became my passion. I hope all future cosmetologists and estheticians are apart of JD Academy .

Nicky B – Former Student

Since it's inception, I've had the opportunity to interview and work with many of the graduates from the JD Academy in Danville, California. It's been my experience, the caliber of students are technically well educated and prepared for their journey into a successful career in the beauty industry. The JD Academy is always my first call when looking to expand the team at Tribez Salons. Donna Bruner, Owner Tribez Salons

Salon Owner Testimonial

Ms. Janet. I have some exciting news for you today. I was just hired with Blue Mercury to start as a sales associate and later move into an esthetician position. The best part is it is literally right around the corner from my house. I couldn't wait to share the news with you. I'm literally crying out of JOY and GRATITUDE!!!! Thank you for having faith in me, you have no idea how much that means to me. Thank you for allowing me to get my education at JD Academy.
