The Recurse Center is operating all 2020 batches online. Our space is closed until further notice as a precaution during the COVID-19 outbreak. We are currently unable to offer grants for upcoming batches. Read more.
What we do. The Recurse Center is a self-directed, community-driven educational retreat for programmers based in New York City and currently operating online.
Our philosophy. We believe people learn best when they take control of their own education and are free to explore what they’re interested in. RC is heavily influenced by unschooling.
Never graduate. RC doesn’t end after you leave. We have a diverse, active, and engaged alumni community of over 1,700 smart, enthusiastic, helpful programmers all over the world.
Build a career. We’re here to support you at every stage of your career, whether you’re looking for a new job or not, and whether you just finished RC or attended many years ago.
