About Us

Our Mission
Boulder Code Academy is a employee-owned and
operated web development school committed to just and equitable education with
a focus on community and self-sufficiency.

Affordable

We meet in local cooperatives and free worker spaces to keep costs down. Our classes are offered on a sliding scale, and we always save room at our table for committed individuals who cannot pay.

Casual

We don't code with our shoes on, and we encourage the same in our students. Don't be surprised if fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies get passed around during coding sessions.

Supportive

We operate on a first name basis. We're not your instructors, we're your friends. Your future success is our #1 priority. Keeping in touch after the program is very important to us.

Effective

We're committed to being student-focused. We make sure you get the knowledge you need to get the job done effectively. Our training doesn't end at coding, it includes practical applications and common workplace needs.

Let your skills grow.

Boulder Code Academy prepares you for a web design career in 4 weeks.

We'll meet twice a week and go over everything you need to hit the ground running in a web development career. Our experience and passion for quality web design is the foundation. Our curriculum, developed over 4 years of research in Boulder Valley public schools, is the topsoil to help you grow a new solid skill-set. Contact us to learn more about how our 4 week course can benefit you.
