A South Carolina-based coding school with 15 locations across the country announced plans Thursday to close all of its campuses.

The Iron Yard, a four-year-old company, posted a message on its website about the closure.

“In considering the current environment, the board of The Iron Yard has made the difficult decision to cease operations at all campuses after teaching out remaining summer cohorts.”

The note said the company will finish its summer classes, including career support for students before closing.

“The education our students have been equipped with remains valuable, and we are proud of our alumni and their accomplishments,” school spokesman Eric Dodds said.

The company's website lists 15 locations from Tampa to Las Vegas.

According to its website, tuition for programs ranges between $900 for a one-time course to build "fundamental web development skills" to $13,900 for the chance to become a "junior web developer in a time frame that suits your schedule."

"While our journey is coming to an end," the school said in a statement. "We will always take pride in the thousands of people our staff helped to launch new careers."
