flexible tuition options

We succeed when you succeed

We don’t think that financial capacity should be a barrier. That's why you will be given flexible options to finance your tuition.

When Holberton School students succeed, everyone succeeds.

Holberton School offers flexible tuition options that allow you to focus on school, not tuition. To top it all off, some of our campuses offer living stipends and scholarships to help you cover the cost of living while you attend school full-time.

Learning by doing

The Holberton School Way

Project-based learning is a proven alternative learning methodology to the traditional teacher-led lecture and educational memorization method.

Rather than teaching a lot of theory and having you occasionally apply a fraction of your knowledge on a class project, we do the opposite. We give you increasingly difficult programming challenges to solve with minimal initial directions on how to solve them.

Through learning by doing and learning how to rapidly adopt new skills and methodologies, you are better prepared to succeed in this ever evolving industry.You are trained, challenged, and tested on today's technologies, but the learning skills you develop here will prepare you to adapt to and learn the technologies and the coding languages of tomorrow.
