Kenzie Transformations

Kenzie alumni share their inspiring success stories!

“Building this community, building all these new skills, building all these new values and contacts that I got, it honestly changed my life. Kenzie really did everything it needed to do for me, and I appreciate that.”

– Zachary Kline

“It was a big turning point for sure in my career because that was my transition to tech. I wasn’t a programmer at all. I didn’t know how to do any of the things I learned in Kenzie. Because of my experience at Kenzie, now I’m ready for so many different types of conversations with technical people.”

– Kash Farhadi

Bootcamp Style Tech Education

Kenzie Academy tech and coding certificate programs are bootcamp style. This means, similar to traditional bootcamps, Kenzie programs are intensive and accelerated college alternatives.

Unlike typical bootcamps, Kenzie programs offer these benefits:

  • Programs extend to 9 or 12 months to support more in-depth learning, training, and application.
  • Schedules are flexible. Classes are not during required fixed times and days.
  • Federal financial aid, such as loans and grants, is available for tuition assistance.
  • Students earn a certificate from a nonprofit, accredited, private institution.
  • Graduates may continue their education by applying completed program credits toward a degree program at SNHU or other institutions, if eligible.

How We Began

Our Story

Kenzie Academy was founded as a tech and coding school and startup by Chok Oi, who immigrated to the United States from Malaysia for a better life and future. Despite the barriers to opportunities he encountered, he achieved his goals through education, building a career, and entrepreneurship. Chok was also passionate about giving back to others who have similar experiences. So he laid the foundation for those who need a more accessible, affordable pathway to join the tech workforce. Kenzie Academy became that educational pathway for all people from any background.

In 2021, Southern New Hampshire University acquired the Kenzie Academy programs to advance Chok’s mission and expand the opportunity for people to transform into the tech talent employers need. With Kenzie Academy, you can change your skill set, change your job, change your life.
