Emily, Student

I've been here several times and each time, my hair turned out nice. But yesterday, Jessica did an awesome job! Her instructor also did a good job on my bangs. Thanks, Jessica and Vessie.

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.

"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 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 .
