The Atlanta location will be the school’s fifth location outside of its Manhattan flagship campus, and the first location in the Southeast.
“We’re excited to announce our first campus in Atlanta and become a part of the thriving business community here,” said Adam Enbar, CEO and co-founder of Flatiron School. “Home to so many established and growing companies, Atlanta is poised to become an epicenter for today's top talent. By opening a campus here it will ensure that local companies don't have to look far to find the best and brightest employees.”
Flatiron School’s mission is to diversify the tech industry by making education more accessible.
As part of the campus expansion into Atlanta, Flatiron School has partnered with Atlanta-based Opportunity Hub to offer $1 million in scholarships per year for under-tapped students of color across the country.
The partnership will also host an influencer-driven campaign in the hopes of funding more technology education scholarships for high-potential students of color from low-income backgrounds.
The school will be taking applications for its inaugural class that will start on September 17.
To celebrate its Atlanta opening Flatiron School will hold two free coding workshops. The first, designed for beginners, is Saturday, August 4 at 12:00 PM. Register here.
The second free workshop is Tuesday, August 7 at 6:30 p.m. Register here.
