Course Overview

Bootcamp Prep is for any student who's interested in applying to an elite coding bootcamp -- like the Software Engineering Immersive program at Fullstack Academy -- and wants to learn the programming skills needed to pass the coding assessment and technical interview.

What is the Admissions Process like for Bootcamp Prep?

Fullstack Academy's Bootcamp Prep has a light admissions process. Although the course is 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 pace which yields quality outcomes for students.

There are 2 components of admissions for Bootcamp Prep:

  1. Several short application questions (completed when submitting a deposit)

  2. A short Coding Admissions Assessment (completed after submitting the deposit)

The Bootcamp Prep Admissions Assessment is comprised of “easy” level questions on topics such as Strings, Arrays, and Loops. Completing the Codecademy JavaScript track is likely enough preparation, although participating in a video-based course like JavaScript Jumpstart is even more effective. When you submit your deposit for Bootcamp Prep, you get access to JavaScript Jumpstart. We stress that you complete this workshop prior to completing the admissions test.

Admissions Process

  1. Submit a $450 deposit, along with admissions questions, in order to reserve a spot in your desired Bootcamp Prep cohort.

  2. After submitting the deposit, you’re invited to the admissions test and given 1 week to complete it. You’ll also get access to JavaScript Jumpstart Online (typically takes 10-12 hours to complete), which is very effective preparation for the test.

  3. After you take the assessment, Fullstack will get back to you in a few days to inform you of your assessment performance.

  4. If you pass the test and are accepted, your spot in Bootcamp Prep will be confirmed and you will be ready to start class on Day 1.

  5. If you do not pass the test, you will have the option to defer to the next Bootcamp Prep cohort (free of charge), or you can choose to receive a full refund of your deposit.

If you have any questions about this process, please email admissions@fullstackacademy.com.

What are the pre-requisites for this course?

While this course is designed for beginners, we do expect that you have learned the basic fundamentals of JavaScript such as variables, loops and functions before coming to class. In case you haven't, we'll give you free access to our "zero-experience" beginner course, JavaScript Jumpstart Online. You'll receive free access to this course in the confirmation email you receive when you register for Bootcamp Prep.

When do we meet?

Course Dates: November 28, 2016 - December 15, 2016 (4 Weeks)

Schedule: Mon-Thu Evenings | 6:40PM – 9:40PM

Note: To accommodate the Winter holiday break, classes will also meet on Saturday 12/3 and Saturday 12/10 from 10 AM- 4 PM.

What is the curriculum?

As a student in Bootcamp Prep, you’ll be taught by professional software engineers with many years of experience.

You’ll come to our NYC campus 4 nights a week, for 4 consecutive weeks. There is also remote work to be completed on the off-nights. The class is a mix of instruction followed by practical workshops designed to solidify your understanding of each concept.

You'll develop core programming skills and use them to solve various coding challenges. In week 4, you'll work on a project that pulls together everything you've learned. The goal of the project is to provide context on how JavaScript is used in a practical application.

During the four weeks, you'll learn the fundamentals of programming in JavaScript, including:

  • Nested loops
  • Nested conditional statements
  • Test specs (Jasmine)
  • Objects
  • API’s
  • JSON
  • How the web works
  • The call stack
  • Recursion
  • Functions
  • Scope
  • How to master coding challenges
There is a total of 60 hours of classroom work delivered over 16 classes.

What is the tuition?


Tuition for this course is $2,750
. An initial deposit of $450 is required to reserve your spot in this cohort. The remainder of the tuition is paid on the first day of class. We accept all major credit cards and checks.

Does completing Bootcamp Prep guarantee me a spot in the immersive program at Fullstack Academy?

Although this course prepares you for the Fullstack admissions process, completion of the course does not guarantee acceptance to our immersive program. You will still need to complete the same coding assessment and interview process as all other Fullstack applicants.

If you get accepted into the Fullstack immersive program, then $1,500 of the tuition from this course will count towards your tuition for the immersive program. This also applies to tuition for Fullstack's partner school, Grace Hopper Academy.


How does the "coding bootcamp guarantee" work?

If you successfully complete Bootcamp Prep, we guarantee you’ll get accepted into at least one of these coding schools:

  • Coding Dojo
  • Dev Bootcamp
  • Flatiron School
  • Fullstack Academy
  • Galvanize
  • General Assembly
  • Grace Hopper Academy
  • Hack Reactor
  • Launch Academy
  • Turing School

If you make a good faith effort to apply to all schools listed above within 3 months of completing this course, and are not accepted to at least one of them, then you will be eligible for a full refund.

What do I need to bring?


Students must bring a functioning laptop to class. Macs are preferred, however Windows machines are acceptable. You will also need to complete roughly 10 hours of pre-work before the first day of class.
