10 REASONS TO CHOOSE DERMACADEMY
- Skin care and makeup are highly-sought-after and lucrative careers!
The US Bureau of Labor predicts that estheticians will grow at a rate of over 12% with an average spa salary of over $35,000 medical-based jobs averaging $46,000! As health, wellness and ageless beauty continue to become an integral part of people’s lives, the demand for highly-skilled and licensed professional estheticians will continue to grow!
- State-of-the-art Training.
Dermacademy is a Pivot Point International School. This means that your textbook is provided in hardback, much like other schools. However, at no extra charge to you, it is also provided electronically and digitally and downloadable onto up to 6 devices. In fact, your kit comes with a tablet! Dermacademy can score performance rubrics on your device, your tests are electronic, and you can monitor your progress in real time. The software allows you to upload your work directly to social media and all your lessons can be watched and re-watched at your pace, making for truly personalized learning!
- Professional Partnerships.
Dermacademy is especially proud of our Partnership School status with Dermalogica, the world’s leading skin care company, trusted by over 100,000 skin care therapists worldwide. This partnership means that your Pivot Point International curriculum is overlaid by a Dermalogica curriculum, provided by the International Dermal Institute, the world’s leading postgraduation skincare education provider with the most challenging and rewarding curriculum available anywhere. It also means products tailored to meet your educational needs. Most importantly, it means job placement assistance after graduation in industry leading spas including Hand and Stone, Massage Envy and Ulta.
- Industry-Experienced Instructors.
Dermacademy is a family-owned and operated small business run by professional cosmetologists and experienced salon owners. This means your instructors and staff know what it takes to be successful in the real world and can customize your learning. Your curriculum is based on the things employers are looking for in new graduates and your skills won’t be solely dictated by outdated textbooks and instructors who never worked in the field. You’ll be trained to be professional, highly-skilled and most importantly, job ready.
- Professional Kits.
North Carolina State Board of Cosmetic Arts demands only minimal supplies in a student kit. However, at Dermacademy, we provide extensive supplies, relevant makeup from NYX Cosmetics, a tablet for electronic learning, as well as a hardcover textbook, a workbook, a state board exam prep book and a lash extension textbook. No other school’s kit is as comprehensive. You’ll have everything you need to start working in a salon!
- Real hands-on Training.
Other schools offer small segments on things that are actually happening in the industry, like lash lifts or social media marketing. Some schools charge extra for things like lash extensions or airbrush makeup. At Dermacademy, all of this and more is included in your tuition and in your curriculum. We each spray tanning, social media marketing, airbrush makeup, and lash extensions. These are the things that will make you employable and able to command top-dollar salaries starting on graduation day!
- Personalized attention.
We’re small by design. We know that other schools accept everyone who applies and fill classrooms to and even beyond capacity. Conversely, we are deliberate in our acceptance policies and only choose students who have the ability to graduate and reach their full potential in the workplace.
- Affordable Tuition.
Dermacademy has developed a business model that will allow students to come to school for virtually no out of pocket expenses. The school’s owners know that expensive educations don’t always translate into successful graduates. In fact, it was a love for the cosmetology industry and a love for the Triad that prompted the owners of Dermacademy to enable students with the same passion to not need federal financial aid to attain their dreams. Why borrow thousands of dollars in order to only graduate with student loan debt that will saddle the beginning of your career? There’s a better way!
- Flexible Schedules.
Do you want to graduate as quickly as possible and start earning in as little as 17 weeks? We have a plan for that! Do you need to keep your job until you graduate and can only commit to a part-time schedule? We have several plans for that too! Do you work during the day and want to come at night? Do you work at night and need to come while your family members are in school? We have plans for both of those situations too! At Dermacademy, it’s all about you!
- Location, location, location!
Dermacademy is centrally located in Kernersville, NC, in the heart of the triad! This makes it convenient to Winston Salem, High Point, and Greensboro, as well as outlying cities including Asheboro, Thomasville, Lexington and even Charlotte and Raleigh! The campus is safe and the area is diverse! You’ll take classes in a historic building full of charm and rich with charm and you can always find a quiet place to study in our beautiful courtyard!
