Web Development has three mandatory class meetings per week. There are also optional but strongly encouraged study halls and office hours in the afternoons. Students should dedicate at least 30 hours a week to get the most out of the program.
The Starter League is located at 30 N Racine Ave, Suite 210 in Chicago, Illinois.
Class will be held at our brand new space in Chicago's West Loop. You'll have 24/7 access, a large classroom, chalkboard walls, breakout rooms, a kitchen, and plenty of comfy couches. We strive to create the most beginner-friendly, non-intimidating educational environment you've ever been in. We're also next door to Basecamp, our partners and experts in building great products.
Web Development tuition is $8,000. When you're accepted, a $1,000 deposit is due within 5 business days to secure your spot. The remaining tuition is due by or before the first day of class. If you have any more questions, feel free to drop us a line.
The Starter League works on a rolling admission cycle, so the sooner you apply, the better your chances are of being accepted.
