Academy Alumni

Networking Opportunities

One of the leading purposes of alumni associations is to support a network of former graduates who will, in turn, help to raise the profile of the university. Just like most other university student organizations, alumni associations aim to bring together like-minded individuals.

Success Stories

With a career in hair and beauty, exciting opportunities are at every turn. Pivot Point Academy’s objective is to prepare students and professionals alike to be industry leaders and enable them to focus on what they do best in a way that inspires them, fits their lifestyle, and achieves their personal goals.  We reach our objective by relying on Pivot Point’s curriculum. A curriculum has a proven track record around the world. Here is a sample community of accomplished Pivot Point Curriculum educated alumni.
