Fullstack Academy is the premier software development school located in New York City and Chicago. Y Combinator-backed, our school has garnered the attention of Forbes, TechCrunch, and Business Insider, among others. The reputation of our school is built on the professional success of each and every one of our students. Students have gone on to promising careers at top-tier companies, like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Spotify. In January 2016, we created the Grace Hopper Program, a need-blind software engineering program for women. In 2017, we launched Web Development Fellowship @ Fullstack Academy in partnership with NYC Tech Talent Pipeline, to offer a tuition-free version of our flagship Web Development Immersive to eligible New Yorkers.

About Fullstack Academy
Our purpose is to transform individuals, communities, and economies by teaching technologies that power the future.
There is currently a shortage of skilled web developers in the burgeoning tech industry, so Fullstack Academy offers a functional programming education that costs less than a four-year degree, is more specialized and takes less time, and prepares students to launch a career as soon as they graduate.
We're also committed to diversity and inclusion, which makes tech a more welcoming industry for all of us, and yields better products and services. That commitment is exemplified by the 2015 founding of our partner school Grace Hopper Program, an all-women's bootcamp that lowers the barrier to entry by enabling women to attend bootcamp first and pay later--once they've gotten full-time, in-field work.
