At Per Scholas, we envision a future where individuals from any community can access well-paying tech careers, and where talent is recognized and recruited from many diverse sources. Over 11,000 graduates have launched successful careers in tech to date through our no-cost technical training. Our mission is to not only open doors to technology careers, but to build the foundation for future sustainability and growth for our communities. We accomplish this mission by:

Creating Opportunity for Careers in Tech

We believe that much of our nation’s talent is hidden in plain sight. We work directly with employers, large and small, to design rigorous, boot camp-style courses with an 85% graduation rate. Our tuition-free training combines business professional skills development with hands-on technical instruction for high demand jobs.

Closing the Tech Skills Divide

We prepare individuals to work in key technical roles and equip them with today’s most sought out industry skills. We have placed graduates nationwide for various entry to mid-level tech roles across every sector and provide continued upskilling and professional development support to alumni up to two years post-graduation.

I peaked in my previous career and was ready for a change. I have always loved computer science but thought it was just for college kids out in California. But if you study hard, you can make it!

Achieving Diversity in the Tech Workforce

We are building a more diverse technical workforce with employers by creating on-ramps for women and people of color, groups staggeringly underrepresented in IT employment today. 87% of our students are people of color, a third are women, and a third are young adults.
