You'll learn the latest techniques on the latest equipment, in a hands-on, working spa environment. Our goal as educators is to prepare you to quickly transition from student to a professional spa environment.

Learn the business with W Academy's Summit Curriculum

Gain a thorough understanding of the business and marketing side of the skin care industry, such as scheduling and maintaining a client-base, anticipating product needs and more accurately estimating predicted income.

Build a Killer Portfolio

A rock solid portfolio is your foot in the door and will be key to opening the doors to the types of locations that you're working towards. W Academy will give you every opportunity to create an extremely high-level, door-opening portfolio that shows off your best work.

Crush the Licensing Exam

Academy will give you the detailed, theoretical and health/safety education needed to pass the state licensing process. You'll participate in multiple Mock State Board practical exams to amply prepare you to pass the practical portion of the state board. We bring in guest presenters to discuss the ins-and-outs and what to expect.

Create Lifetime Friendships & Connections

We absolutely love watching the relationships and bonds created between our student teams develop. We foster a social environment, both because it makes the learning process more fun and because it prepares you for life in a spa. With class sizes intentionally held to small groups, you're going to create lifetime friendships as well as future networking opportunities.
