The App Academy

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.

Coding Bootcamp 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 Coding Bootcamp is 24 weeks long, while our Part-Time Coding Bootcamp 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.

Admissions Steps

1. Application

Provide us with information about your background, where you are at in your decision process and why you feel App Academy is a good fit for you. The application will take about 10 minutes to complete.

2. Admissions Survey

With the survey, we’ll ask you 20 questions that will help us measure your your current logical reasoning, pattern recognition and web development skills. This survey is not based on a pass or fail grading system. Rather we’ll use your results to be able to better guide you to your next step.

3. Code-Along Project (requirement varies)

For those asked to complete the project, you’ll be creating a flash card app using basic HTML, CSS, and Javascript. It will take 4 hours on average to complete. This step is not required for all applicants and is based on your score on our Admissions Survey.

4. Non-Technical Interview

You’ll answer a series of questions and we’ll assess your professionalism, passion for coding, resiliency and work ethic, etc. during this asynchronous online interview. Most applicants will be invited for a second interview if they do not pass on their first attempt.

Acceptance & Enrollment

Once you’ve passed the Non-Technical Interview, you’ll officially be accepted to App Academy. Then you’ll work with your Admissions Specialist to select a payment plan, complete your paperwork & enroll in your desired bootcamp.
