Bootcamp Prep
Prepare for Grace Hopper admissions

The path to success starts with preparation

We have two classes to help you prepare for admissions into the immersive Grace Hopper Program at Fullstack Academy:

If you're on a tight schedule or learn well on your own, start with Fullstack Prep, a free, self-guided online course offering high-quality videos that lead you through coding challenges and offer interactive hints and solutions.

If you prefer to learn in a classroom setting, or if you’ve already completed Fullstack Prep and want to be even more prepared, enroll in Bootcamp Prep Live, a 4-week on-campus class. You’ll receive hands-on instruction from top-tier instructors and learn to solve real-world coding problems in the company of your fellow students.

What you'll learn

As a student in Bootcamp Prep (taking either course, or both), you’ll work through a curated collection of the best coding challenges from all of our course offerings. By doing this, you'll develop a strong understanding of the fundamentals of programming.

The courses are intense and mentally demanding, so we only recommend them for those who are truly committed to attending the Grace Hopper Program, or another top coding school.

Bootcamp Prep Live

There is a light admissions process for Bootcamp Prep Live. Although it's 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 good pace and yield quality outcomes for students.

Here's what the admissions process looks like:

  • When you sign up for Bootcamp Prep Live, you'll answer several short admissions-related questions.

  • You're then invited to take a short coding assessment. The assessment has “easy” level questions on topics like Strings, Arrays, and Loops. Completing the Codecademy JavaScript track is likely enough preparation for it, though taking a video-based course like Fullstack Academy's JavaScript Jumpstart is even better.

  • After you take the assessment, we'll get back to you in a few days to let you know the outcome.

  • If you pass the test and are accepted, your spot in Bootcamp Prep Live will be confirmed and you’ll be ready to start class on Day 1 of your selected cohort.

  • If you don't pass the test, you will have the option to defer to the next Bootcamp Prep Live cohort (free of charge), so you have a chance to study some more and take the test again. Or you can choose to receive a full refund of your course fee.
