Your day at Flatiron School
Every day is unique at Flatiron School, and our curriculum team and instructors develop new lessons that build off past cohorts. But structured, consistent learning is also crucial to student success. Below is an example of what you can expect on a daily basis in a Flatiron School classroom.
Your day begins with an open discussion when you can ask questions, review new skills, and program materials from the day before to ensure you’re up to speed.
Learn key concepts from your expert instructor through interactive exercises and collaborative discussion.
Work together with a partner to build your strategic and tactical coding skills and learn from one another.
Labs & mini projects

You’ll end the day reviewing concepts and strategizing the next steps in your personal projects.
Where our graduates work
Meet your instructors
Great teachers inspire us to connect to topics on a profound level and to practice lifelong learning. Experience as a developer alone doesn’t necessarily make an effective teacher — that’s why we’re passionate about finding not only great engineers, but deeply committed and experienced teachers.
Coming from a background in education, Eric Kim found his love for programming and problem-solving while studying mathematics. He enjoys working with people and bringing out their best potential. When he’s not teaching, Eric enjoys a good brain-teaser, as well as a good hike.
Marc's been a professional developer for 25 years and change, and a teacher for less than that. He's taught game development at ACC, full-stack web development at Galvanize, and improv all over the world. When he's not teaching or making computers go, you can find him directing award-winning theater, or playing, designing, and publishing tabletop games.

What the application process looks like
Aptitude for software engineering is built from an innate curiosity about the world and how people interact with it. We don’t admit students, we craft a class: a lawyer, journalist, and pro-athlete will approach solutions differently, creating a richer learning environment for everyone involved. All that you need to bring is your passion and an open mind.
Submit your application. Share a bit about yourself and what’s driving you to start a career.
Speak with an Admissions representative in a non-technical interview. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. Nothing technical — just a friendly conversation.
The technical review assesses your basic grip of coding and how it interacts with us in our daily lives. Demonstrate interest by completing steps on Learn.co, our learning platform.
Receive your acceptance decision from Admissions. This usually happens within 4 business days.
If accepted, you'll begin course pre-work to prepare for the first day of class.
