The main concept that sets App Academy apart is that we invest ourselves fully in your success. If you select our Income Share Agreement plan (Deferred Plan for CA residents), you will only pay a small $3,000 deposit for the course until you get a job as a developer. Furthermore, App Academy DOES NOT require a credit check to be eligible for the ISA. This ties into App Academy's mission of providing universal access to a world class software engineering education.
This forces us to be extremely thoughtful at every step of the program, from the way we structure our admissions process, to the way we determine what to teach and how to teach it. Every piece is affected by our investment in you. Here is a quick breakdown:
Admissions: Because there is an ISA/Deferred Plan option, we have a much wider applicant pool to select from, allowing us to accept students based on merit and not how much they can pay. This process is essential to the strength of our student body and success in the job search.
Curriculum: Our #1 goal at App Academy is to provide you with the skills to get a job as a software developer. To achieve this, we are constantly evolving our fullstack JS/Python curriculum to ensure that the skills you learn are the most relevant and valuable in the industry. Some of these topics have been determined over our 5 years of placing students, while others have evolved through conversations with top hiring partners such as Google, Uber, and others. We have a dedicated Curriculum team that is continuously making adjustments and works to keep our curriculum on the cutting edge.
Job Search: Unlike other bootcamps, our Income Share Agreement Plan means that if you don’t get a job as a software developer, the tuition for the course is free. Therefore, when you graduate, you can trust that we will do everything in our power to get you the best job offer possible. Regardless of tuition plan, we strive to help you find long term and meaningful job placement. To improve your candidacy we teach not only hard skills, but soft interviewing and interpersonal skills as well. We help with interview prep, salary negotiation, and provide you with our alumni network at the best companies in the world.
