Iron Yard closing all campuses including Greenville code school

Iron Yard closing all campuses including Greenville code school”

Last year, when my colleague Sarah Schmid wrote about Iron Yard opening a location in Detroit, she noted the coding school has 20 US campuses, as well as one in the United Kingdom. Today, the company announced it was shutting its doors at all locations.

A statement issued by the Greenville-based technology education company via its blog said it planned to cease operations at all of its campuses after teaching out its remaining summer cohorts.

The course teaches students to developed software and code skills that Iron Yard founders say were lacking when the began.

Board members of The Iron Yard board said it was a "difficult decision" but that ongoing summer classes would continue until they are done. We will finish out summer classes completely, including career support.

The Iron Yard (formerly an accelerator program) is a for-profit coding school, and its owner, Apollo Education Group, also owns the University of Phoenix and other institutions, according to the Upstate Business Journal. A 12-week crash course at the Iron Yard costs $12,000.

Barth could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday.

The coding school established its presence in Charlotte in 2015 and operates in cities across the country including Atlanta, Austin, Indianapolis and Las Vegas.

One thing that isn't clear yet is what the news means for Iron Yard Ventures, the seed-stage investing arm of the coding bootcamp.

The company broke the news in an announcement at its website.
