Over our five years as a school, we’ve helped over one thousand students learn to code and launch careers in tech. To achieve these outcomes, we’ve never let ourselves stop growing – we’ve constantly iterated on our curriculum, evolved our teaching techniques, and created technology to improve our students’ learning experience.
Today, we’re thrilled to share the next step in our growth: Flatiron School has joined the WeWork family.
In WeWork, we’ve found a partner who shares the mission we’ve had since the beginning: to enable passionate people to learn the skills they need to pursue careers and lives they love. And that mission won’t change. As part of WeWork, we look forward to working together to expand our in-person and online programs and further increase accessibility to our transformative education.
“WeWork shares our vision of what a better world looks like – a world in which education enables the pursuit of a better life. Where it provides people with a life that they love, not just an employable skill. Where reinvesting in your education and being a lifelong learner is accessible to everyone, not just those whose lives fit a certain mold. We couldn’t be more excited to build that future with WeWork.”
For those who may not know WeWork, the company was founded in 2010 with the idea of building not just beautiful, shared office spaces but creating a world where people work to make a life, not just a living. The entire ecosystem is designed, built and operated to provide WeWork members with everything they need to focus on doing what they love and creating their life’s work – from office space and living space to wellbeing programs and, now, education.

In short: WeWork shares our vision of what a better world looks like – a world where education does in fact enable the pursuit of a better life. Where education provides people with a life that they love, not just an employable skill. A world where reinvesting in your education and being a student for life is accessible to everyone. And like Flatiron School, WeWork believes that our missions to change the way people learn, work, and live aren’t possible without a key ingredient: community.
By joining WeWork, we’re excited to accelerate our growth and change the lives of more students by expanding both our In-Person and Online programs as well as developing new opportunities and formats for people to learn new skills and love what they do.
Flatiron School will continue operating, enhancing, and expanding our flagship in-person and online web development programs. As we grow with WeWork, we’ll be announcing new campuses across new cities in the coming months. Longer term, we’ll work with WeWork not only on new venues for our programs but also new educational models and courses, as well as new opportunities for the WeWork member community.
Yes, Flatiron School will continue expanding both our online and in-person course offerings. In the future, we’re excited to explore opening campuses in additional cities and to continue experimenting with blended learning models – combining the most effective elements of our in-person and online approaches.
Expanding access to our education has always been and will continue to be an incredibly important part of our mission. We remain committed to providing scholarships for women and underrepresented groups in tech as we grow – and look forward expanding these efforts with WeWork’s support.
We built and grew Flatiron School on a foundation of student outcomes first. As we join WeWork and continue to grow, putting our students and their outcomes first will remain our focus above all else. We’re excited about the new opportunities to educate more students in more ways, but we will not be compromising our approach towards admissions, curriculum, instruction, and career services as we expand.
