SINCE 1972

We have been in business for over 45 years, serving agents and employers with qualified models and actors, many of whom have been highly successful.

At Julie Nation Academy, we have always believed strongly in building confidence, self-esteem and the importance of having a self-chosen value system that supports a child, teen or adult to grow personally and professionally. Agents express great appreciation of this aspect.




As individuals and staff at Julie Nation Academy, it is our mission to create a supporting and loving environment. We aspire to empower each student and person whose life we touch, to grow into their potential. In order to obtain and maintain this potential we offer professional training in: personal development, fashion and photo modeling, high fashion runway, and acting for television and film.


We aspire to live the words and meaning behind the Nelson Mandela’s 1994 inaugural speech, quoting author Marianne Williamson:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world, we are all like fine Canadian diamonds. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others like flowers in the wind.”
