The American Barber Academy, located on Route 10 in Reading, has announced it will be relocating to a state of the art facility in April 2020. In addition to the relocation, the academy will also change its name to American Barber and Beauty Academy, offering courses in Cosmetology, Barbering, Esthetics, and Instructor Programs.

The Academy will move into the former A.W. Golden Cadillac dealership property, just a mile away from the current academy location. Currently under development by Shuman Development Group, the former dealership is being transformed into the Lancaster Avenue Plaza, which will also host a grocery store and seven other shops.

“We look forward to extending our mission to our new students and clients” states academy management. The new facility will include 12 barber stations, 26 styling stations, 6 manicure and pedicure stations, and 10 Esthetic stations.

Over the last 7 years American Barber Academy has successfully graduated hundreds of students through their Barber Program. Graduates have successfully opened on their own or have worked in established salons and barbershops. The academy boasts their success is attributed to the culture, If our students are not successful, we are not successful.
