Project Rising TIDE

Project Rising TIDE connects local residents to introductory and advanced coding training opportunities while enhancing the talent pool to support local companies. We believe that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” By actively supporting both people and businesses, we all grow stronger together.



Technology is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. Our coding bootcamps train people in the most in-demand programming languages and soft skills, while cultivating the network they need to jump start their career.


When you’re here, you’re family. You don’t need to be certain age, from a particular background or have a degree to be successful in tech. Whether you’re a student or just visiting, we always strive to make you feel welcomed and supported — no matter where you are in your journey.


The tech community should reflect the makeup of our community, and Grand Circus is doing our part to get us there. We offer automatic diversity scholarships for women, people of color, veterans and members of the LGBT community. We’ve been able to become a leader in making tech more diverse with one third of our bootcamp graduates being women and 30% people of color.]


Grand Circus has proudly trained more than a thousand students in programming. If you want to launch a tech career, you’re in the right place! Everything from our introductory workshops, rigorous coding classes to our career assistance coaching is about preparing our students for a successful career.
