Skills Fund Partner Spotlight: Eleven Fifty Academy

Skills Fund is excited to welcome our newest bootcamp partner, Eleven Fifty Academy!

Eleven Fifty Academy offers in-person courses on JavaScript, Java and .NET. Each course is 12 weeks in duration. All students begin with the same three-week Foundation course and then branch off into language-specific immersion courses.

Eleven Fifty Academy is a non-profit organization based in Carmel, Indiana, in a 30,000-sq. ft. property owned by entrepreneur and inventor Scott A. Jones. Off-site seminars are hosted in beautiful spaces such as theaters and co-working spaces. The typical cohort size is 15 students.


True to their vision that all individuals with the interest and undiscovered passion for technology will be fully actualized, Eleven Fifty Academy’s programs facilitate hands-on learning to students of all ages and abilities.

As students complete courses, they receive three badges of achievement. Upon receiving the Purple Badge, students are ready for a career as a professional coder.


The core values of the program include:

  • Diversity: We respect and foster the growth of all people regardless of their disposition in life, physical or intellectual abilities.
  • Learn: We acquire and refine knowledge and skills through relevant instruction, shared experiences, self direction, and practice.
  • Ethics: We are genuine, transparent, and authentic in everything we do.
  • Team: We work as a group and utilize copied strengths to achieve a shared vision.
  • Quality: We drive excellence in all efforts, experiences, and interactions.
  • Influence: We instill disciplines that positively impact perceptions, behaviors, decisions, and attitudes.
