Welcome to Somerville Academy

Somerville is an online digital marketing school created by and for women. Born out of a need to have more women, especially more women of colour, in the technology industry. Our programs are designed to give women the skills, experience, and confidence they need to start their careers on their own terms.

An online digital marketing school. For women, by women.

Our online learning portal lets students work around their existing schedules. Lessons and office hours are live-streamed so the logistics of going back to school, including commuting and childcare, are easier to handle.

Our Values


We’re committed to doing the work to help all women to feel safe and supported here. Because we’re stronger together.


It takes courage to learn new skills, to start a new career, and to believe in yourself. Bravery over perfection.


Students, alumni, instructors, and staff – we lift each other up, now and always. Get involved.


We know that life happens. So whether it’s kids, relationships, or another curveball, we’re there for each other.


We have one rule for our students, instructors, and team: Don’t be an asshole. Break that and you’re out.
