Located in beautiful downtown Boston, Massachusetts, just minutes from the city’s ocean views, lies the bustling tech hub of Launch Academy. The instructors at Launch Academy choose to put morals and genuine human connection at the forefront of their curriculum because they believe that in order to succeed in the technical field, you must first dedicate time to improving your personal self. Launch Academy’s student-centered approach to coding is innovative, and forms the foundation of the bootcamp.
Launch Academy’s learning program is broken down into a variety of segments. If students are new to coding, they can participate in a three-week ‘pre-flight’ program before taking on a full course load. Students then spend eight weeks participating in the ‘ignition’ program, which includes a variety of pre-course work to be completed before students move on campus. The in-person bootcamp takes place for ten weeks at the Boston Launch Academy offices.
Aside from an outstanding portfolio, graduates of Launch Academy walk away with a variety of both technical and life skills. Near the end of their time at the Boston campus, Launch Academy students participate in Career Kickoff. The school designated a special day to networking with potential employers and showing off projects that they’ve built during the program. After completing the course, students also have access to six months of post-graduation support from mentors and career service guides at Launch Academy. Additional support includes portfolio reviews, mock interviews, access to guest speakers, and more. Launch Academy worked to forge partnerships with over 300 companies, many of which hired Launch Academy alumni. Partner corporations include Fidelity, CareCloud, NPR, HubSpot, Spartleaf, UbiCare, and many more.
The total cost of Launch Academy’s program is $17,500. In addition to upfront payment, Launch Academy students can select financing plans that fit their individual requirements. Launch Academy partnered with lender Skills Fund to offer a variety of payment options. The company also offers several $500 scholarships for underrepresented communities in tech.
