A Computer Science Academy Unlike Any Other

Lambda School's Computer Science major goes deep.

You'll learn to program in several languages (including JavaScript, Python and C), and will learn to understand computing from its most fundamental levels.

Frontend, backend, servers, databases, APIs, and more. You'll conquer it all.


The Lambda Academy of Computer Science trains students not only to deploy simple applications, but to understand what is happening under the hood.

World-class Instructors

Lambda School instructors are dedicated, full-time, expert engineers who literally wrote the books and curricula used all over the world by thousands of schools and professors.


You don't pay anything unless you get a great job.

You'll only begin paying tuition after you have a job that pays over $50k per year and utilizes the skills you learned at Lambda School.

If you can't get a high-paying job using the skills you've gained, you'll never pay a dime.


Full-stack, Hands-on

Lambda students learn full-stack development with some of the most in-demand technologies. By the end of the Lambda School course, students will have built and worked on multiple apps.


Student Stories

Joram Clervius

Joram had never made more than $15/hour before joining Lambda School. After Lambda School he was hired directly into a role as a Senior Engineer at Nexient.

Julian Pegues

Before joining Lambda School, Julian worked in a warehouse moving boxes. After Lambda School, he landed a job working as a React Native Engineer at Uber.


Lambda School is pioneering a new model of higher education in which the school invests in the students, instead of the other way around. Attending Lambda School can be completely free up-front (no deposit, no down-payment), and students pay back a portion of their income after they find a high-paying job.

If, for some reason, a student is unable to find a job with a salary above $50k per year, they are not required to pay anything.
