Fall is fast approaching and that means two things: pumpkin spice lattes and going back to school. These days, it’s not just kids and college students thinking about their first day. 

In fact, many adults are choosing to return to school years after their last educational experience. That’s because educational alternatives like Flatiron School are here to provide the opportunity, support and flexibility you need to change your career and life.

Whoever you are, however else you spend your days – you can bring that with you to Flatiron School. We’ve already helped thousands of students, from professionals to musicians to gamers, who went back to school after successful careers to learn Software Engineering, Data Science, and UX/UI Design.

Take the jet mechanic for the U.S. Navy who went back to school. After high school, she didn’t want to go back to school, so she joined the military. She continued her education on the side, but she said it “bored” her. Eventually, she left the military and joined a startup. When the startup declared for bankruptcy, she decided to pursue a career change. After discovering coding bootcamps existed, she fell in love with code. Today, she’s an iOS engineer at Spotify.

We’ve also had moms who went back to school. They juggled learning JavaScript during nap time or while the kids were at school. Dads who went back to school found the time to change their careers as well. Whether it was in the morning or late at night, they had the support they needed to succeed. That support included the Ask-a-Question feature on that lets them get help in near real-time or the emphasis on pair programming that helps students learn from each other.

We believe the best way to learn is through a supportive and collaborative environment. Our educational platform has built-in features like Ask-a-Question that provide support in near real-time. 

Opera singers have gone back to school to become data analysts. A lawyer is now a software developer at a startup helping to fight climate change. A bartender from Las Vegas is now a software engineer in Denver. We’ve also had our fair share of teachers who have traded the classroom for code.

There’s never been a better time to go back to school than now and no better place to do it than with Flatiron School. You can learn full-time in person at one of our conveniently located campuses. Or you can choose between full-time, part-time, and self-paced options for the Online Software Engineering Bootcamp or the Online Data Science Bootcamp. For Online UX/UI Design Bootcamp, we have full-time and part-time options.
