What's a Coder Story?
Our Coder Story is theCoderSchool's way to guide our Code Coaching students through the roadmap
of possibilities they have as they advance in their coding abilities.
From coding contests to language assessments, from trying to meet your
U.S. Congressperson to interning at our schools, we've identified a number
of activities our students can do with us beyond just building awesome apps.
A Roadmap of Options
While each activity has an associated minimum age and coding experience, our
story elements aren't meant as a curriculum, but rather a set of options that
open up for kids as they become more proficient. In the end, each student's
story is up to them - do 'em all, explore a few, or deep dive into just one. Every student
is different, and true to our Code Coaching philosophy, we want to make sure
every kid is treated in a personalized way.
Can a Coder Story Help College Acceptance?
Maybe! As many parents know, these days it's near impossible to get into a top
college, and even harder to get in as a Computer Science major. Often college
admissions officers are looking beyond the grades and scores, and asking
what is that applicant's "story". A student's story shows the breadth of
exploration they've done, and can help to show colleges that a student really
does have a significant interest in computer science. Our Coder Story is a
first step towards building a student's story - for an even more college-centric
approach, take a look at our
guide to getting into college as a CS major
. Remember, there's no
checklist or easy way to get into a top college. We can provide the support,
but it's up to the student to do the work - and have the authentic passion to show!
What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids
learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music
lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding classes for kids? We're among the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the
way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get
our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®. Check out our Carrollwood, Westerville, and Folsom location or all locations.
