Bootcamp Prep

Get into a Top Coding Bootcamp

The path to success starts with preparation

Bootcamp Prep is a 1 month, part-time class that prepares you for admissions into the top coding schools, including Fullstack Academy's selective immersive programs. You'll learn the fundamentals of programming and JavaScript, and how to solve real-world coding problems.

Bootcamp Prep has 2 components: A free, self-paced course with coding challenges and review videos (Fullstack Prep), and a 4 week live class where you receive hands-on instruction from teachers and can interact with fellows students (Bootcamp Prep).

What you'll learn

As a student in Bootcamp Prep (taking either course, or both), you’ll work through a curated collection of the best coding challenges from all of Fullstack's course offerings. By doing this, you'll develop a strong understanding of the fundamentals of programming.

The courses are intense and mentally demanding, so we only recommend them for those who are truly committed to attending Fullstack Academy, or another elite coding school.

Admissions for Bootcamp Prep Live

There is a light admissions process for Bootcamp Prep Live. Although it's designed for beginners, the curriculum starts with the assumption that students have basic familiarity with JavaScript syntax. This allows the class to move at a good pace and yield quality outcomes for students.

Here's what the admissions process looks like:

  1. When you sign up for Bootcamp Prep Live, you'll answer several short admissions-related questions.
  2. You're then invited to take a short coding assessment. The assessment has “easy” level questions on topics like Strings, Arrays, and Loops. Completing the Codecademy JavaScript track is likely enough preparation for it, though taking a video-based course like Fullstack Academy's JavaScript Jumpstart is even better.
  3. After you take the assessment, we'll get back to you in a few days to let you know the outcome.
  4. If you pass the test and are accepted, your spot in Bootcamp Prep Live will be confirmed and you’ll be ready to start class on Day 1 of your selected cohort.
  5. If you don't pass the test, you will have the option to defer to the next Bootcamp Prep Live cohort (free of charge), so you have a chance to study some more and take the test again. Or you can choose to receive a full refund of your course fee.
