Barbizon Today Back to Facts and Claims

Claim:
Is Barbizon a scam?

Fact:
We’ve heard the claims. We decided to address them, head on. After all, you don’t stay in business for over 70 years if you are running a scam. We’ve gotten to the bottom of the questions and some of the complaints and felt you should hear the facts.
1. “I paid money to Barbizon and I didn’t get a job”

The truth is we can’t predict the future and we can’t guarantee our students will secure employment in the modeling and acting industry. Just as if you went to NYU and studied Journalism they can’t guarantee you a job in the journalism industry. We can tell you that Barbizon has an extensive network of casting directors, agents, managers, producers and other industry professionals that we work with to provide our graduates opportunities in the industry. And while not everyone will find success in modeling or acting, our graduates have gone on to find success in other areas. You can view our some of our alumni stories below.

2. “Barbizon accepts everyone.”

We don’t accept everyone, we have class size restrictions and can’t always accept everyone who auditions. However, we do offer more than just modeling and acting training, we offer personal development and self esteem development. So we may accept some young people into our schools that come for reasons beyond wanting to just be a model or actor. We accept young people we feel would benefit from our programs and have a real interest in what Barbizon courses can offer.

3. “You shouldn’t pay for an agency.”

You’re right. You shouldn’t pay for an agency. But Barbizon is not an agency. We are a training center or a school. We do have a tuition fee for our training programs that is comparable to many extra curricular activities.
