Through our elite curriculum, small class sizes and expert faculty Provo and Salt Lake City (Utah) -based V School Full-Stack Web Development program is the most certain bridge from little or no coding background, into a well paying career as a computer engineer.
Based on industry and job trends, we’ve chosen JavaScript as the weapon of choice. 5 days a week, 8-10 hours a day for 13 weeks, you’ll fully immerse in both front and back end web development, tackling the ins and outs of these languages: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, Node.js and jQuery.

Our students graduate the program trained in understanding, manipulating, creating and querying databases + APIs. On the client side, students leave the program versed in responsive web design and dynamic interfaces (Agile / SCRUM)
Few if any coding academies can boast a 100% job fulfillment rate. At V School we proudly can.

First off, the bar for admission is set high. You’ll be sitting next to only the most dedicated classmates, likewise obsessed with excelling and making a great career for themselves.
Secondly, our core team has been helping students find technical jobs for more than a decade. You’ll learn how to prepare a technical resume, interview with confidence, negotiate job offers and create a personal presence / brand on GitHub + Linked-in. Take confidence in our ability to prepare you.
As technologists we live in a very exciting time. You’d surely experience some difficulty finding a comparable career path as exciting, flexible and lucrative as that of a computer engineer. Choosing the right bootcamp is essential in this process. For a fraction of the time / money you’d invest in a traditional education, V School will project you further, faster.
Salaries vary throughout the country, but there’s a consistency in quality of life / income that come from our 12 week bootcamp, no matter where you live.

At V School we understand the importance of creating an environment that cultivates collaboration. This is important for your mental, personal and professional health. Coding / building all day long can either be frustrating or invigorating. Professional networking can either be a drag or an exciting challenge. The difference between these two very different perspectives is often based on our daily environment. Chemistry among staff, students, instructors and industry partners doesn’t just lead to a better time, but actually allows our students to grasp the concepts that they are learning with more ease, as well as opens more professional doors that lead to better employment opportunities.
Know that we obsess over culture so that you don’t necessarily have to. We’ll Tee-up the good vibes that will allow your student experience to be second to none.

Code Create Convene

Placement test:

Timed, 40 minute story problem test that evaluates applicant’s ability to think logically, pay attention to detail, solve complex problems and work under stress.
We’ve found that the students who do best in our courses are not necessarily those with past coding experience but rather, have a driven approach to learning to think in a certain way. Based on industry research as well as our own testing and experience we have designed a V School Aptitude test to evaluate future student success through logic problems, basic math and detail oriented exercises. This test is both timed and allows the use of calculators and scratch paper for working out problems.
Non-timed challenge that evaluates applicant’s ability to apply resilience, resourcefulness and problem solving skills to learning to code through a 4-part ​exercise in the Google Chrome web browser.
In addition to the logical thinking skills evaluated in the Aptitude Test, we’ve also found that students who do best in our courses excel in resilience and resourcefulness. The Admissions Challenge in turn does one final evaluation of an applicant’s resilience and resourcefulness through a 4-part exercise in the Google Chrome web browser.

Preparation work before test:

30 hours of assigned basic HTML/CSS and JavaScript study + Coding Project proving understanding of these concepts to be evaluated by an instructor before attending the first day of class.

    I chose V School over other programming bootcamps because it simply gave me the most time with teachers for the money. When I started I didn’t know enough about programming to distinguish between different schools’ claims, so I just went with the numbers. V School was not the cheapest, but it gave me the most.

    V School was intense and hard, but I learned a ton. I am a full time, full stack developer and have not stopped learning. I actually got a job before my course ended. If you are willing to work and study, V school teachers, directors, and mentors will help you succeed. The curriculum is thorough and really prepares you to keep learning. V School is really just a starting point, because they do such a good job of preparing you to move forward. It’s not all cotton candy and tulips! It is hard, challenging, and demanding, but IT WAS WORTH IT. I may go back for a night class in iOS development when it becomes available.
