What Makes Your Foundry College Experience Unique?
Go beyond the lecture and learn alongside your classmates - in real time – with role-playing, breakout groups, and active learning exercises.
Classes are conducted entirely in the online classroom, with no pre-work or homework assigned.
Actively engage with your professor and fellow students throughout the class, and work directly with your personal coach and peer mentors.
“This was a great opportunity to learn fundamentals I didn’t have, and the real-world learning in Foundry’s classes offers things that a textbook simply cannot.
Having these professional skills and the project management credential is very critical and important for me, and I feel well equipped for success now that I’ve earned the CompTIA Project+ certification.”
- Dustin, Foundry College Project Management credentialed certificate graduate
You'll Master Concepts
At Foundry College, you’ll do more than just get by – you’ll master the concepts in your courses. Rather than earning a grade, you’ll be able to demonstrate a deep understanding of the material and apply your skills and knowledge in your work and personal life.
“I had started Trailhead and gotten lost along the trail. If you are interested in filling up your toolbox with useful skills and knowledge, this program is for you!
Every single class had something that I could use in my job.”

Focused on Your Success
Your success matters to us, so we’ve designed our program to provide you the type of community you’ll need to thrive.
Your personal coach will meet regularly with you to help navigate the challenges of managing responsibilities outside the classroom.
The Student Support Team guides your academic success, providing you with extra support when you need it – including workshops, peer mentors and study groups.
We understand the power of connecting face-to-face. You’ll interact with your peers and faculty in every live class, through online forums, and in optional meetups and events.
Every class is designed and taught by an experienced faculty member who either holds a Ph.D. in a relevant field or is an industry expert in the specified area.
“My coach helped me revise my resume, and I felt more prepared going into interviews. Foundry College has really helped me move forward with my career!”
