Update as of March 19, 2020
Due to the recent issuance of the Shelter at Home order issued for Solano County, we have closed our Vacaville campuses until April 6, 2020 per the current guidance from the Solano County Health Officer. If conditions warrant, we will update this post.
Students are being moved to receive online classroom instruction only, while faculty and some administrative staff are available remotely to offer support to students. Only essential staff are allowed on campus at this time until further notice.
Our current move to the online format is effective through May 10, 2020 however we will continue to monitor conditions and the status of the COVID-19 impact in our community to determine when it is safe to return to regular campus delivery of our program offerings. We will continually update our website homepage message, so please check back for updates.
The goal of our College’s safety measures is to minimize contact and exposure therefore we will do all that is necessary to take steps to ensure instructional continuity during this period. We pray for all to stay safe and well with hopes that the impact of the current health risks will be reduced and we can all return to a period of normalcy soon.
At Blake Austin College, we believe that life’s too short to give our time to something we don’t enjoy. We spend the majority of our time at our jobs, so why not do something we love?

Stories of FREEDOM, EMPOWERMENT and SUCCESS.
“Being an older woman coming back to school was a very scary time for me. I wasn’t sure how schools would see me or even if they’d give me the time. I met Stephanie first and from that day I knew this was a school I wanted to be in. She guided me through the process and I started on time. My instructors I felt were picked just for me. There was never a day I felt they were there for anything else than to see us succeed and be the best nurses we could. The support, knowledge and encouragement was always there, never a lack of anything we needed to make it through the program successfully. I built a family while in school and if you’re looking for a place to not only learn, but grow as a person, Blake Austin is the place to go.”- Rhonda B.

“When I enrolled I was a bit apprehensive about starting a new career. I am a breath away from turning 30, and just had a brand new baby. I wasn’t sure if going back to school was even realistic for my lifestyle. However I was at a point in my life where I knew I needed to make a change because I was tired of dead end jobs and wanted something better for myself. When I came in I was a bit insecure about being one of the oldest in the class and starting over but Mr. A made it easy and really creates a team atmosphere in the class so you don’t see age, gender or any other barriers that you may have elsewhere.

“My favorite experience here at Blake Austin Beauty Academy would probably be the time I met my “forever client.” To experience first hand a genuine bond between a hair stylist and a client was a radical feeling. To be able to make this client feel more beautiful in her own skin with the hair she, for so long disliked, was a priceless experience.”- Meika L. (Licensed Cosmetologist)
“At Blake Austin Beauty & Wellness Academy, I truly felt that feeling of belonging. ON my first day I was welcomed with open arms. They welcomed my like family. I also become more confident with my clients. Being in school helped me overcome those fears and grow more sure of myself.”- Flynn Pule (Licensed Massage Therapist)
“My favorite experience so far has been getting to know my classmates and instructors. It’s so good to see different people from different walks of life come together and do something they all love. I love the camaraderie between the staff of different programs and the administration team.”- AJ A. (Licensed Esthetician)
“I’ve never been to a school quite as beautiful. Every client that I have that is new to the campus always compliments the facility for its cleanliness, contemporary equipment, and smiling faces! I also really enjoy all of the continuing education classes/seminars! These courses render great insight to the latest and greatest trends within our ever-changing industry.”- Erica R. (Licensed Cosmetologist)
