Welcome to Arkansas Coding Academy!
This spring completes Arkansas Coding Academy’s 5th year! As the new director, I am happy to report we are more devoted than ever to creating a thriving community of software developers in Arkansas!
Our mission at Arkansas Coding Academy (ArCA) continues to be to provide information technology training to individuals in Central Arkansas, but we don’t stop there. When you enroll in a course at ArCA, you join a community of like-minded, driven individuals with a passion for technology. We will work hard to ensure you are challenged, but we will be with you every step of the way. We will offer you access to our career services so that you leave us prepared to interview for developer jobs. We connect you to our community of Alumni and invite you to networking events where you will have the opportunity to make new connections. Your success is now our success, and we want to help you however we can.
Arkansas Coding Academy is a non-degree, certificate-granting program. We are a part of the University of Central Arkansas’s Division of Outreach and Community Engagement and to date have graduated more than 100 graduates, most of which work in technology fields in the central Arkansas area. Our approach provides hands-on, real-world training provided by instructors who are themselves proven, IT professionals working in the Central Arkansas area. Because our instructors are leaders in the IT field, our courses are typically offered in the evenings, with periodic Saturday sessions. Our courses can be intense, but our instructors and staff are here to support our students every step of the way.
If you’re considering our program, we’re here to answer any questions you may have. If you’re a student recently enrolled, then welcome! We are thrilled you’re here and we can’t wait to help you write this next piece of your story. Programming is a skill that will serve you forever. If we can be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
