The App Academy
Admissions
Process

Transforming your career begins with an application to one of our bootcamps. Once accepted, you’ll be on your way to learning the programming skills necessary to become a full-stack software engineer.

Online Program Admissions Process

We offer both full-time and part-time online immersive bootcamps, which are great options if you prefer a remote learning experience. Our full-time online course is 24 weeks long, while our part-time online course is 48 weeks, excluding the job search period. Both courses feature Python, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and SQL as part of their curriculum, as well as a mastery-based learning model.

For those needing more flexibility, our part-time bootcamp allows you to keep your day job and learn to code on nights and weekends. As a graduate of either course, you'll get training you need to become a successful software engineer.
