Our Programs

Cosmetology & Esthetician Programs at JD Academy’s East Bay Campus

What path are you taking?

Where will your career to take you?

The W Academy offers two separate education programs at our San Francisco East Bay campus in downtown Danville, CA. Our cosmetology program is designed to create successful salon professionals. Our esthetician program is geared towards those looking for a spa career in skin care and makeup.

Both programs are specially designed to develop and refine your arsenal – giving you skills that top salons + spas are looking for and the technical knowledge needed to pass the California License Exam.

That’s an important distinction that really separates JD Academy from other beauty schools in The Bay Area.

Simply passing the exam is not our goal. Our mission is to cultivate your own creativity while also preparing you for a successful career in the Salon + Spa industry including building and maintaining a client base, staying current with industry trends and the art of guest servicing & retailing.
