- Software Engineering Student- 8/14/2019Shaquon Kelley • Student • Course: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING IN PERSON (9 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
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.
- Great Software Engineering Program- 1/2/2019Patrick Hanson • Student • Student • Course: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING IN PERSON (9 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
Starting Kenzie Academy has been one of the better career/life decisions I have made. I needed something to jumpstart my career and Kenzie has definitely given me the tools to do that. I feel confident that with the education and assistance provided by Kenzie Academy, I should be able to find a job using my new skills.
- Full Stack Development- 11/7/2018Austin Levine • Student • Course: SOFTWARE ENGINEERING IN PERSON (9 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
I enrolled in Kenzie Academy's Full Stack Web Development course 4 months ago. Since then, I have learned a robust amount of in-depth knowledge that more than keeps me occupied! I have been self-taught for many years, but nothing beats the amazing instructors at Kenzie Academy. For awhile, I was far ahead and needed some extra work. One quick question to the instructors led me to be sufficiently challenged and my thirst for learning reinvigorated!
- Such a cool experience!- 6/11/2018Samuel Mosey • Student • Course: FRONT-END WEB DEVELOPER ONLINE (6 MONTHS) • Campus: Indianapolis
Coming in with no experience in any type of web design, or development, it goes without saying that it seems intimidating up front. However, a very informative and in-depth curriculum, dedicated on-site instructors, and amazing learning environment make for an enjoyable, not to mention practical, learning experience.
The program cultivates creativity, community, and a judgement-free zone, no matter your level of experience with web development, designed to make sure that you personally thrive and are ready for the work force.
10/10 would recommend.
- Student at Kenzie- 4/3/2018Taylor • Student • Course: Developer Training • Campus: Indianapolis
Kenzie Academy is a great place to be and great place to learn, prior to attending Kenzie I was a Paramedic with 6 years in the public safety industry. Traditional college was not an option for me. Kenzie Academy's education track puts you in the right direction for a blossoming career in the tech industry. The curriculum is tough but the instructors and staff are available around the clock and extremely informative. The staff at Kenzie has many years in the industry with lots of connections for guest speakers and potential job opportunities in the future. Do not pass this opportunity up!
- I love Kenzie Academy- 4/3/2018Meaghan • Student • Course: FRONT-END WEB DEVELOPER IN PERSON (6 MONTHS) • Campus: IndianapolisKenzie Academy is a great place for learning in a non-traditional environment. The staff and other students are readily available to assist with any issues. The school is structured to ensure the success of every student. If you are looking for an opportunity in the Tech field, I highly recommend Kenzie Academy. There are many opportunities to communicate with industry leaders and a vast network of contacts within the industry to expand learning beyond the in-house staff. The school is also flexible, allowing students to work remotely.
- Review For Kenzie- 2/28/2018Adrian • Student • Campus: Indianapolis

It is a very good working enviroment and a very big stepping stone into the WorkForce for up and coming programmers and new to the business world. I grade it a 10 outa 10
- Anonymous • Not Because of Kenzie Academy • Student • Campus: Online5 Instructor stars for: Sharmin Kent and Angela Knezevich
I attended Kenzie Academy for the Digital Marketing (DM) Program. If you look on their website, the DM program is no where to be found. I'd list this is the #1 red flag. There are no student testimonials from the DM program. of which there were 4 cohorts.
The first instructor, Sharmin, was excellent. She gave lots of time to teaching and encouraging students despite any challenges outside of the course they might be facing.
It was soon revealed that only Sharmin cared about students' wellbeing, job placement, and career advancement. The second block ruined the entire program. We were chastised for not using cameras and were threatened with being kicked out of the program. We were told Kenzie is not a democracy; Kenzie was simulating a work environment for our benefit. Guess what? At my job I have never been told to turn my camera on - this includes during the pandemic.
I am stuck paying back 13% of my income for 24 months. There was zero job support. What do I mean?
I used strategies from a $200 course to land my first DM job - not Kenzie Academy. The portfolio of projects was never looked at by any interviewer even if I brought the assignments with me.
We were given no instruction how to to interview. By this I mean, what kinds of questions for DM would be asked? How would be prove our job related skills? Most employers don't want to hear about coursework, they want to know how you're using Google Analytics, PPC, SEO, and content strategy to give % return to a business. We had no such use cases.
One Kenzie employee (yes, only one) sent job postings to our Slack channel. Those jobs were high level, not suitable for a 6 month boot camp graduate. I worked an 8-5 and then had Kenzie 6-9...then filled out job applications for weeks. Hundreds. With no guidance.
I am not the only Kenzie student with this experience.
To this day I cannot verify how many DM students were successfully placed in DM jobs. Supposedly there is a partner network, I have yet to hear of any DM student being hired by said partner program.
Although the DM program is defunct, I can assure you Buyer Beware.
