Hello, Silicon Valley.

Computer programming (coding) jobs are in demand. But learning to code takes hard work, time, & dedication. Kids fortunate enough to learn at an early age have a significant advantage.

The coding languages we teach

Beginner students typically start by learning Scratch, a language developed by MIT University for building video games. Students then learn to build websites using HTML, CSS & JavaScript, or study Python scripting. Our most advanced students study Unity video game development with the language C#.

What parents are saying

Would my child enjoy coding?

Coding is not about playing video games, it's about creating and problem solving. Does your child enjoy drawing or building with legos? Are they mischievous? Do they like discovering short-cuts? Do they have an entrepreneurial spirit? Do they have big dreams? These are all tell-tales that your child might benefit from learning to code.
