JD Academy is a nationally accredited institution with an amazing track record of helping budding artists realize their dreams of becoming successful, professional stylists, colorists, makeup artists, skin care specialists and more.

With most students, we take a multi-stepped approach to make tuition as affordable as possible. Being nationally accredited, we encourage students to take advantage of all federal and state level programs available to help offset the cost of tuition and our financial aid advisors use decades of experience to help you through this process. These are pieces such as Pell Grants and VA Benefits.

Once we’ve exhausted those options, we can help identify other scholarship opportunities and finally, look at student and parent unsubsidized and subsidized, interest-free payment plan loans for any portions of tuition not covered by these other programs.


Financing the Remaining Balance

Once you’ve submitted your FAFSA application and have received your FAFSA ID, studentloans.gov is the U.S. Government’s resource for applying for federal student loans.

"I want to thank my teachers; Ms. Lily, Ms. Bernie, Ms. Joni, and Ms. Catherine who had such a huge positive impact on me and my time at JD Academy. It was challenging going through school during the height of the pandemic (I started in February 2020) but felt I was able to push through with all of their help, encouragement, knowledge, and guidance along the way. Also, a huge thank you to the staff members during my time at JD Academy such as yourself Ms. Dee, Ms. Janet, Ms. Kelsey, Mr. Phuong, and everyone else there who made attending school so delightful. Although I'm currently attending school for Medical Assisting, I still have a love and passion for esthetics! I'm hoping to obtain a job that can incorporate the two fields."

Raquell, Esthetician Program Graduate

I am a current esthetician student at this school. Highly recommend! The teachers are so supportive and kind. Everyone here truly cares about their students. I have learned so much from here and they really prepare you for state board.

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.
