- They're Invested in You and it Shows- 9/3/2019Janell Huyck • Student • Course: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING IN PERSON (9 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
I'm currently enrolled in the Software Engineering program at Kenzie Academy. The set-up is exactly as described on their website.
The payment arrangements are for real; I didn't have the money upfront for a boot camp, but I'm getting the education I need for a much better paying job.
We are getting real-world advice and questions answered by people who are leaders in the industry. They dial in for question-and-answer sessions and are really helpful.
The program itself seems really well-thought-out and designed to walk you step-by-step through the learning process of becoming a programmer. I'm not saying it's easy. It's really hard. They're teaching you how to independently learn to program. At the same time...
There's lots of support from the coaches and facilitators as well as other students. Seriously: one thing that Kenzie does well is making sure that there are enough people around to help you when you get stuck. Because you're gonna get stuck or confused. That's part of learning.
Kenzie doesn't promise a smooth ride. But they promise to be with you every step of the way. So far, everything they've told me has been trustworthy. We're still near the beginning of the program, and I feel confident that it will be a challenging but worthwhile rest of the year and that they will prepare me to find, and actually help me get set up with that dream job.
They're invested in you and it shows.
- Terrific Digital Marketing Program- 8/30/2019Dawn M. Smith • Student • Campus: Indianapolis
Finding a training program that offers an Income Sharing Agreement (ISA) as a payment option is impossible. I was pleased to find a school that offered this opportunity. The digital marketing program covers not only the fundamentals of digital marketing but also covers the concepts of marketing in general. I would definitely suggest to anyone interested in a digital marketing program consider Kenzie Academy.
- An innovative way of learning- 8/30/2019Joe Barror • Student • Course: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING IN PERSON (9 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
I am a student of the se July 2019 cohort and i think the way they challenge you to learn is fun and rewarding.
They don't just give you all the answers, they challenge you to do the research necesary to accomplish the task at hand and figure out problems you encounter, and if you have trouble or get stuck they have an amazing support group of staff that is always willing to help. We call our cohort family because that's what it is like. Everyone is willing to help evryone else to achive the same goal. Team work makes the dream work!!!!
I HIGHLY recomend attending Kenzie Academy if you are interesnted in learnig up to date web development technologies.
And with their ISA program anyone can afford to get the education they need to succeed!

I have been to a top tier university and several other good programs. I graduated from one of those with dean's list honors. Here's the key, at Kenzie you learn real-world skills that are marketable to employers right out of the gate. You get skills that can be used immediately in the job market. Other schools do not teach things that way, everything is theoretical. Another thing that struck me about the place is that people actually treat you humanely, not like an indentured servant, like I felt at other schools.
- Kenzie is Amazing- 8/30/2019Mauricio Alvarado • Software Engineer Student • Student • Course: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING IN PERSON (9 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
I am currently a student at Kenzie, and my experience has been incredible , I feel like I'm learning so much and yet it hasn't even been more than 2 months . I can't wait to see what the future holds . The curriculum and staff and Kenzie is phenomenal not to mention my peer cohort students . Who are AWESOME we are like a great big team always willing to help each other out and support one another !
- Great program for career changers- 8/29/2019Justin Miller • Student • Course: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING IN PERSON (9 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
I am currently a student at Kenzie and started their Software Engineering track a month ago. When I decided to change career paths from customer service to information technology, I wanted a program that would teach me more than just one programming language and give me tools to succeed in software development. I found that at Kenzie.
I decided on Kenzie because of they offered a full stack program in a small amount of time but the content was robust. Having a dual certificate from Butler University and Kenzie for the software engineering portion is also a nice bonus. The main reason I like Kenzie is because of the people and environment at the campus. From the first day that I took a tour everyone I met was kind and knowledgeable. We are forming a great relationship with our cohort and with the larger academy community, so when changing careers like I am, you don't have to go it alone.
- Software Engineer Student- 8/29/2019Chris Wilson • Student • Student • Course: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING IN PERSON (9 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
I am a remote student for the Full Stack Developer course with Kenzie Academy (my sixth week in!). I have a multidisciplinary background that spans both civilian and military venues. Starting as a private in the military, becoming a manufacturing specialist, manager, pallet shop forearm, hauling 31 tons of beer up a mountain, to a nationally certified instructor in the civilian world. I have always wanted to work with computer software and development but I never had the opportunity as I was always traveling with work. I became disabled, through a rare medical condition, a little over a year ago and needed something to do with my time. I checked the internet for different careers I would be interested in. The Software Engineer certification offered by Kenzie academy would allow me to work remotely. I looked into several different computer-related boot camps. Almost every one of the boot camps wanted an exorbitant amount of money upfront while offering minimal training and no assistance with job placement. Kenzie filled the niche for my requirements and the potential career I was looking for due to my current medical condition. My plans are to stay with Kenzie academy through the entire two year program and get the job-ready training that they provide. With their connections and assistance with job placement, I know that I will have a viable career thanks for Kenzie Academy and their staff! If I can do it, you can also!

If you are looking for a program that is not only rigorous in its curriculum but will make you feel like you’re walking into a tech start-up on day one, seriously give Kenzie Academy some consideration.
I have previous work experience and was looking for something to help me make a career shift. What I needed wasn’t a 4-year program but rather something I knew would prepare me to walk into a career with the skills I’d need. Since coming to Kenzie I have started to think differently and approach problems from a more holistic perspective. It’s a tough program but very worth it.

I'm a SE student here at Kenzie Academy. I've been here for 8 months now and my experience here has been amazing. It's literally a dream come true that an opportunity like this would open up right here in the heart of Indy. Indy is my hometown but when I found out about Kenzie I was in Bloomington, IN trying to get back into school. To do that it would have taken me 2 years to transfer into the school I wanted to. After a year of trying that option out I started to look for other options. I knew from my college experience before and from my own research that coding and software development was a growing field so I looked up coding bootcamps in Indiana. Little did I know 4 months before that Kenzie Academy was starting up. Let's get this clear Kenzie is NOT a bootcamp and it's unlike any other school I've been to (I attended 2 other schools in Indiana before attending here). This school ended up being the answer to what I needed in life at that time. I needed a community of intelligent hardworking people, I needed a jump start to my career, I needed something close to home and lastly I needed another chance in life. This school gave me all of that and so much more. So far I have gained a Front-end SE certificate from this school and I'm on my way to getting the full stack cert next. The school is growing I highly recommend you join the new force in tech right here at home in the midwest! And for anyone not in able to attend on campus they have a bolstering online pathway as well. I just want to say thank you to Kenzie Academy for helping me achieve my dreams. It really means a lot to me.
