SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- App Academy, a top ranked coding school with locations in San Francisco and New York City, announced today that it has launched Bootcamp Prep, a program designed to prepare engineering hopefuls for admission into the most selective coding bootcamps in the world. App Academy is guaranteeing graduates of Bootcamp Prep acceptance into a coding bootcamp or their money back.
This new program further affirms App Academy's commitment to quality and the performance of its graduates via their unique success-based tuition models. App Academy also offers a 12-week immersive program that charges students a percentage of their first year's salary after graduating from the program. By investing in the future of its graduates, rather than charge them upfront, App Academy continues to reverse the incentive structure for higher education.
"Our success-based tuition models force us to be extremely thoughtful when developing our programs because if we don't yield results for our students, we suffer financially," says Kush Patel, CEO and co-founder of App Academy. "We are the first to bring this structure to higher education and this alignment of incentives has played a major role in placing 98% of our graduates in software development jobs at an average salary of $105,000 in San Francisco and $89,000 in New York City."
"The bootcamp admissions process is rigorous," says Director of Marketing, Daniel Filous. "It usually involves a variety of technical interviews and tests which can be a hurdle for many applicants. When the quality of the bootcamp you attend means the difference between getting a job or not, preparation for the admissions process becomes that much more important. Bootcamp Prep seeks to be a resource for engineering hopefuls, and provide them with the instruction and structure they need to attend the bootcamp of their dreams."
The program is part-time, giving people an opportunity to prepare for a career change, without giving up the security of their current job. App Academy's first cohort for Bootcamp Prep has already sold out, but enrollment for March is currently open.
