About MakeSchool

Make School was founded in 2012 to empower students to build and ship products. Our flagship program is a 2-year college alternative to the undergraduate CS degree. Students learn CS theory, build and ship products, and intern at tech companies before graduating. The curriculum is informed by guidance from corporate partners including Lyft, LinkedIn, Hipmunk, and Edmodo. Make School does not charge upfront tuition for this program - students pay through their internship earnings and 25% of their salary for two years after graduation.

Make School also offers a summer program, known as the “Summer Academy,” where students 13 years and older learn how to design, code and ship their own iOS app or game.
