An Open Letter to a College Dropout

Traditional college is not for everyone. You don’t have to listen to the college recruiters that come to your high school and convince you that a traditional university or college is the only next step. You don’t have to “go with the flow” and follow your friends to their favorite post-secondary school.

You Are Not a Failure

Just because you tried college and hated it or you didn’t enroll at all, doesn’t mean you are a failure. Bellus Academy is for the student who likes to work with their hands. Bellus Academy is for the student who learns better using visuals and doing it for themselves. Bellus Academy is the place for students who don’t necessarily fit the traditional college mold.

You Can Do It

You can succeed. You have the same opportunity to have a rewarding career as someone who went to a university. If you have the passion, the talent, the work ethic, and the time, you can achieve anything you want. We’ve heard it before: “Cosmetology is a nice job for a person who doesn’t want a real job.” That is  simply not true. Cosmetology is a rewarding career in a booming industry. Cosmetology is a job for someone who wants to be creative, help people, and empower themselves and others around them. Cosmetology is for dreamers, artists and entrepreneurs.

You can learn this trade. All you need is the time and the passion. We can teach you the skills. We don’t believe that only bookwork makes anyone a better hairstylist, makeup artist or esthetician. We know that a diverse curriculum helps future beauty professionals become successful.

Do it for You

Don’t enroll in any college, trade school or university for someone else. Follow your dreams because you want to better yourself. Your education is a personal decision. At the end of the day, you are the one going to the classes. Your future self will thank you if you focus on the main goal: BETTERING YOURSELF.

We want to empower you to make the decision to go to cosmetology school. This is a justifiable, amazing industry. Check out our available programs to learn more, or contact us to start your journey today.
