Career growth shouldn't mean sacrificing your job

Balancing a full-time job while striving to break into the software development industry can feel like an impossible feat. You have responsibilities that can’t be put on hold to pursue the skills you need for the career you want. The time, effort, and resources required often discourage many aspiring techies from pursuing their passion.

That’s why we created our new part-time, online bootcamp option.

Open the door to a lucrative tech career

Imagine gaining the expertise to become a sought-after full stack developer, all while maintaining your current job. All without losing any of the support and academic rigor of our full-time, on campus program includes. Plus, here at Launch Academy, graduation is just a milestone along your journey - we provide ongoing career services, up-to-date learning experiences, and a strong alumni network for all our graduates to make sure you are supported throughout your career.

Professional at desk

Practical coding skills for real world success

Our instructor-led program equips you with real-world software development skills. It’s a shorter, more practical alternative to a traditional computer science degree, designed to focus on hands-on application rather than just theory.

Scheduled and Recorded Live Sessions

Learn collaboratively and in real-time, alongside your instructors and peers. If you can't make it, you can catch the recording.

Hands on, challenge-based curriculum

Understanding how technology works requires a learn-by-building approach. Through daily projects, regular workshops, and your personal capstone app, you’ll build skills sought by hiring managers.

Learn the right things, in the right order

You wouldn’t begin building a house by constructing the roof. Chronologically optimized learning is no different. Starting with time-tested fundamentals adds rocket fuel to your ultimate learning trajectory.

Learn from home, but not alone

While you can study from anywhere that has a solid internet connection and a quiet place to concentrate, you will be learning in a small cohort for peer support and interaction

Outcomes that match the technical skills hiring managers are looking for

Hiring managers inform curriculum enhancements every 90 days. With every cohort, we're updating the curriculum to ensure grads enter job interviews with the skills hiring companies want.

What are the cohort sizes?

While we don’t set specific cohort size limits, we do like to keep size during the on campus phase to less than 30 students. Like all rules, there are exceptions. However, one exception we will never make is providing low student to teacher ratios. This is one of the pillars to our high level of education at Launch Academy. People learn better when they have support - ideally in person - and in small groups. Deviating from that philosophy is a nonstarter for us.
