Launch School (formerly Tealeaf Academy) is an online school for studious beginners whose goal is to become developers. Offering a professional grade curriculum designed to teach students to build production quality apps and become ready for jobs as developers at leading tech companies.
Launch School offers students constant support from teachers, teacher assistants, and a community of peers around the world.
The program focuses on full-stack web development, and takes about 1200-1800 hours (8-16+ months) to complete. After completion of the course, students may enter the job-guaranteed Career Services, where they work 1-on-1 with a mentor to land their first job in software development.
The entire course is $199/month, and students can expect an in-depth and advanced curriculum in an online bootcamp.
Once the course is completed, students can apply for a Capstone Program focused on helping students acquire career-launching opportunities. The Capstone Program takes 3 months full-time and employs an Income Sharing Agreement where students pay after they get a job offer.
