Cosmetology Program

The San Joaquin County Office of Education CAREER ACADEMY OF COSMETOLOGY (CAC) combines the allure of high fashion with hairdressing, adapting couture styles to the individual tastes and preferences of each client. More than just classrooms and techniques, the sleek design and progressive curriculum of CAREER ACADEMY OF COSMETOLOGY immerses students in a unique environment and provides an exceptional learning experience.

The philosophy of CAC is to prepare its students to enter the workforce as viable and productive citizens of the community.  The CAC advisory board is comprised of educators and community business owners who meet twice a year to exchange ideas and share updated technology from the world of cosmetology.

Students are given an intense 1600-hour course that incorporates manicures, pedicures, facials, perms, hair coloring, and hair cutting. At regularly scheduled times; the students participate in a "mock state board exam" as a means of self-assessment of their strengths and weaknesses. In addition, we invite the public to make appointments for personal services at reduced rates so that the students may practice their skills and start building professional relationships. Our clients return repeatedly because of their satisfaction with our student’s knowledge and performance.

CAREER ACADEMY OF COSMETOLOGY has established a learning facility that produces talented and well-trained hairdressers and color technicians for salons across North America. Our academy brings quality and consistency to hairdressing education.

New classes begin monthly and CAC offers convenient day and night classes allowing students to attend full or part-time to fit into their schedule.
