+Can I do this part time?
No. We expect you to be present Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM. If you need
to miss 1 or 2 days, that is acceptable. Please ensure that your instructor
knows when you will be absent. If you need to miss any more than 3 days, please
speak with our admissions team to make sure this is a good fit for you this summer.
+My family usually takes a vacation during the summer, what if it conflicts?
This depends on how long your vacation is and where you will be travelling
to - mainly if there is reliable wifi where you'll be. If you plan to miss more than
3 days, please speak with our admissions team to make sure this is a good fit for you
this summer with your specific travel plans.
+Is this the same as the MakeGamesWithUs Summer Academy?
Yes, we changed our name to Make School in 2014.
+Is this similar to a coding bootcamp?
Yes and no. Yes, this is a high-intensity program that teaches you to code.
However, unlike most bootcamps that are career-focused, our Summer Academy is
product-focused. What does that mean? The Summer Academy dives deeper than bootcamps
into the product development process including, ideation, wire-framing, UX, design,
monetization, analytics, etc.
+Is this similar to a coding summer camp?
No, coding summer camps cater to a younger audience interested in a relaxed
summer experience. The Summer Academy is an intense program for students who are
passionate about learning to code - be prepared to work hard and have fun!
+Can I come with a friend?
Yes! The Summer Academy is always better with friends! Your friend will
need to apply through the normal application process.
+Are there any other Summer Academy locations?
This year, instead of offering multiple Summer Academy locations, we decided
to offer it at a lower price in one location (San Francisco) and make housing easily
available. Read more about why we’ve made changes to the program and what those changes
+What is the maximum age for the Summer Academy?
There is no maximum age to attend the Summer Academy. As long as you are passionate
about learning, you will be a good fit at Make School!
