Barbizon Today

Since 1939, Barbizon has been teaching young people the art of modeling and acting. Over the years, there have been a lot of claims, questions and sure even some complaints. We can tell you that through all of this Barbizon is the #1 modeling and acting school of its kind because of one thing: our hundreds of thousands of graduates.

At Barbizon, we have recommitted ourselves to customer service to continue growing and reaching our already extensive list of happy parents and graduates. Furthermore, we would like to take the time to address a few of the questions and claims you may have read on the internet. There are a number of ways to get started in the modeling and acting world and we appreciate each student who has come through the doors of Barbizon. The following information addresses the claims, questions and is quite frankly the truth about why Barbizon has been around since 1939.

CLAIM:
You don’t have to go to a school like Barbizon to become a model.

FACT:
True. You don't. But training does make the process of breaking into and navigating the industry a little easier. This is one of the most competitive industries in the world. The fact of the matter is that sure you could send your photos and resume to top agencies and you might even get noticed, but it’s rare. Many top agencies receive thousands of photos, resumes, portfolios and applications every single day. In the end, many submissions will not receive an appointment.

CLAIM:
I don’t want to go to Barbizon because I saw some things on Internet complaint sites.

FACT:
If you visit complaint collection websites like pissedconsumer.com or ripoffreport.com you will find many reputable companies with profiles of complaints and scam accusations. Even well-known companies like Nordstrom, Dillard’s Inc., Dollar Tree Inc., Buffalo Wild WIngs and Tyson Foods, all of which are listed on Forbes 2014 Most Trustworthy Companies, have accumulated hundreds of complaints.

The truth is that we at Barbizon welcome any and all feedback, whether it is positive or negative, and want to help our customers through communication and a focused effort on customer service. We have been in business since 1939 because we care about our students, graduates and their families and we promise to work hard to provide you the best experience possible.
