Letter From The Director

Welcome to the Academies of Cosmetology, Inc. of the Treasure Coast (herein after referred to as Academies of Cosmetology) operating as Port Saint Lucie Beauty Academy, Fort Pierce Beauty Academy and Beauty & Massage Institute.  Congratulations,  you have just taken the first step in becoming a highly skilled, fully trained successful professional in the career path of your choice.  We come from a proud history, having been home grown and home owned for nearly 50 years.  As our area has grown so have we.  There are now 3 locations in operation with a 4th in the planning stages. 

Our Cosmetology & Barber programs are completed in as little as 1200 hours for a full time day student. This means in less than 33 weeks, you can be well on your way to a rewarding and exciting new career. Our graduates are in high demand up and down the Treasure Coast  as well as scattered throughout the United States, from Hollywood to Broadway and from Disney to Chicago. They hold positions as make-up artists, hairstylists, salon owners, managers, platform artists, instructors and consultants to the stars. They work in a vast variety of places such as cruise ships, chain salons, salon owners, salon managers, team leaders and even research and development personnel.

Our Cosmetology and Barber programs offer the shortest and fastest way to licensure, and our cost of education is the least expensive of any propriety school in the quad county area. Our massage curriculum is 750 hours. For a full time day student this means completion will be in 25 weeks. Our massage graduates can go on to be independent contractors, work in doctors’ offices, work with sports teams or on cruise ships just to name a few career paths this license open up.    

We offer financial aid to those who qualify as well as in house financing and are approved for Veterans training.  We do NOT encumber our graduates with thousands of dollars of student loans that will have to be paid back for years to come.  We also offer easy in house, no interest funding (pay as you go!).

We offer our programs at 3 locations, day or night time, full or part time. There is a campus near you which minimizes driving, commuting time and expense. We welcome you to stop by any time for a tour, or to sit in on classes at any of our campuses.

In short, if you want a school with a history of consistently transforming people into cosmetologists, barbers, managers, owners, instructors and massage therapists, the choice should be clear. Our goal is to make the curriculum interesting and our objective is to transform YOU into a successful cosmetologist, barber or licensed massage therapist. I encourage you to stop by and talk with teachers and students and learn, first hand, how we have been doing it right for the last 5 decades. Get ready for success because here it comes! Feel free to call or visit me at any time.
