Julie Nation Academy, founded in 1972 by former model and actress Julie Nation, was established as a modeling school to provide education placing the “Inner Person” first, that in loving and respecting ourselves we enter the Modeling, T.V. and Film Acting and entertainment industry with confidence, courage and personal creativity. It is with this philosophy that Julie Nation Academy teaches children, teens and adults in its’ Sonoma County/Santa Rosa training center, easy to commute to from Northern California counties.

An award-winning academy, this modeling and acting school is independently owned by Julie Nation, is not a franchise, and refers students and graduates to Bay Area and Los Angeles agents for potential registration and employment.

Child Print Modeling
Cabrilla was discovered at Showcase and has been getting work for years!

On a national scale, the staff of Julie Nation’s has taught workshops in major metropolitan areas by request. Aspiring models, actors, singers and dancers have come to the Julie Nation Model and Talent Showcase, a scouting event, from other states and countries to be reviewed by leading agents and casting directors.

The high quality career and personalized education Julie Nation Academy is known for is held in the highest regard by agents and casting directors and leaders in the fashion and entertainment industries.

Our Personal Development Program is ideal for any child, teen, or adult seeking to grow in self-esteem and confidence as well as personal appearance and social skills. Also available is our Pageant Coaching and Consultation services, which offers classes to help you prepare for your upcoming pageant competition and to take home the crown! Singing lessons are also taught.

The Santa Rosa/Sonoma County, California location of the Julie Nation Academy is located in the heart of Northern California’s wine country, ideal for on-location photo shoots and a sought-after area for filming of commercials and movies. The Golden Gate bridge is 55 miles south of Santa Rosa, and San Francisco’s agents and employment opportunities are easily accessible for Julie Nation Academy students and graduates.

Success Story: Ellie B.

"My daughter Ellie had her first paid modeling job with Gap Outlet scheduled through her new agents at MDT, and has also been booked for fit modeling with Tea Collection clothing! MDT didn't ask to see Ellie at Showcase, but did give her a 9 in the post-Showcase evaluation review, so on Julie's advice, I called them. She also didn't get an offer for representation after her interview in January, but they said they'd consider interviewing her again in 6 months. At the 2nd interview, she was offered representation for fit modeling, print, and commercial! She now has 3 agents! It's a good reminder that even if things don't happen fast, starting somewhere and staying the course can get you there! Thank you for all your help!"
