Fullstack Academy takes a ‘three-pillar’ approach to coding education, emphasizing the importance of curriculum, careers, and community. Team projects are also an important part of the Fullstack Academy program—many of which can be viewed on the bootcamp’s website.
The full-time immersive software engineering bootcamp runs for 13 weeks, with new classes starting every 7 weeks. Classes run from 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM. Students begin the day with a programming challenge until 10:00 AM when the lecture begins. At 11:30 AM, students pair up and complete a workshop assignment. This is part of the ‘pair-programming’ curriculum, which the bootcamp deems essential. At 1:00 PM, students are dismissed for 90 minutes. This period is for lunch and fitness, as many students use the time to exercise or rest. At 2:30 PM, students return and continue on the workshop. At 4:30 PM, students review their workshop assignments and work on additional work until 6:30 PM. The part-time software engineering bootcamp starts with a self-paced curriculum, which lasts for four weeks. During weeks five through 15, students spend three immersive weekends at the bootcamp, and every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM in the classroom. The last nine weeks of the program focus on projects and follow the same schedule.
Students work on a variety of career-prep activities while attending this bootcamp. Students build a portfolio of functional web applications, a LinkedIn profile, a GitHub profile, and develop a resume. Students will also participate in practice technical interviews with multiple sample technical questions. Fullstack Academy graduates work at many companies including Google, Facebook, Amazon, Dropbox, Adobe, American Express, Goldman Sachs, NYSE, J.P. Morgan, and more.
The full-time immersive software engineering course, which is the flagship program at Fullstack Academy, costs $17,910 upfront in New York. Students can also take advantage of financing options for this course, starting at $405 per month for 60 months. A $1,000 needs-based scholarship is also available for New York City veteran and women students only. The part-time flex program at Fullstack Academy costs $15,980, with a $2,000 deposit upfront. Students must also pay a $13,180 bulk payment during the first week on campus, and a final $800 during the senior phase of the program. Two $1,000 scholarships are available for the part-time flex program, along with financing options. The Skills Fund partnership offers cost-of-living assistance loans for a minimum of $227 per month for five years.
