Our mission:
Align education with reality.

Education used to be the best investment one could make. It can be again. Our founders, Adam Enbar and Avi Flombaum, created Flatiron School in 2012 to help students launch careers they love.

Our Story, Our Future

In 2012, Adam and Avi discovered that while their backgrounds were different, their goal was the same: A new model for higher education that is accessible and actually delivers fulfilling careers. Working as a venture capitalist, Adam was discouraged by the Ed Tech landscape. Then he met Avi – a self-taught technologist turned educator. Through small coding workshops, Avi was actually teaching people to code and find jobs on his own. Together, they decided to found a school that could impact more people’s lives and careers through code.

The Internet’s potential to usher in a revolution for education has not yet been achieved. Our programs take what has always worked – community and peer learning – and combine it with modern software tools and real-time online instructional support. We think we’ve barely scratched the surface of how the internet can change the way people learn.

  • Jackie Wattles: “Flatiron’s coding program has a proven track record of turning novices into employed programmers. The school has placed graduates everywhere from Google to NASA and Boeing, and 98% of its graduates who sought a job landed one, with an average salary of $74,000.”

  • Mayor Bill de Blasio: “…with that training George was able to transform his life. He got a job at the XO Group as web developer. Today, this community college dropout with limited prospects is making $75,000 a year in his tech job. That is just one example of personal transformation; transformation for a family.”
