Whether your coder is brand new to Scratch or already building distributed Python programs, we can help him or her get to the next level. Unlike other programs, our talented coaches are trained to tailor the lessons to your kid’s interests with an individualized curriculum. This unique approach fosters a lifelong passion for building and technology. Our program will equip your child with critical skills (logic, breaking complex problems into manageable chunks, working with others towards an end goal) and confidence valuable in any future career.

Small student to coach ratio (2:1), customized project-base coding lessons engage students. We work with each coder in their area of interest and work at their own pace. Learn Scratch, Python, C++, Unity, Java, HTML, Javascript, CSS, Minecraft, Roblox, Raspberry Pi, AI, App dev and other technologies.

At theCoderSchool, we want to do more than just teach coding. We want aspiring coders to use their new found passion as a stepping stone to thinking outside the box, as a way to channel their ideas in a creative way and most importantly, to have fun. Interested? Fill out the form and we'll be in touch shortly to tell you more! Schedule a FREE class and see why our premier service and methodology outshines the rest!

Who is theCoderSchool

Code Coaching®

Code Coaching® is our core philosophy, and what our school is all about!  We believe that every student is different, and that kids should learn in the way that works best for each child. How? Our Code Coaches® - they're the magic sauce!  Unlike some coding schools, we don't just leave the kids in front of a computer, expecting the software to teach them how to code. Nor do we force all kids to go through the same curriculum or projects, regardless of their skills and interests. Instead, our Code Coaches® customize their lessons for each child, and focus on a 2 on 1 mentee-mentor relationship with our kids so our students can get the focused attention they need.

Code Coaching® works for kids of all ages and skill levels, from novice to advanced. From game development to web apps, Python to Java, or even niche technologies like AI and beyond, our Coaches can help your kids achieve their goals.

Sessions run one or two hours a week (your choice), at the same time every week on a schedule that works for both you and our assigned Coach. Check out our video for more info!

Coding Lessons for Kids in Cerritos, CA

Coding takes practice, and we believe getting kids to code consistently throughout the year is the only way they'll really learn to code. theCoderSchool has a staff of over 700 Code Coaches all around the country, so we know a thing or two about mentoring students in computer science. That's why our after-school coding classes for kids revolve around this relationship, providing a long-term mentor in a Code Coach to teach kids to code, from someone who's an expert coder themselves. Serving the top-rated ABC School District and beyond, theCoderSchool Cerritos is located between Long Beach and Orange County in the city of La Palma. In addition to our standard coding programs, we also offer themed camps like Among Us, Roblox, or Super Smash Bros, plus Coding Birthday Parties or Girl Scouts Workshops. Our expert Code Coaches range from students at great universities like USC to those who have worked with Amazon.

Programs at theCoderSchool

Our coding school's flagship after-school program, Code Coaching®, combines a super-small 2:1 teaching ratio with individualized curriculum so kids are able to move at their own pace, doing things that interest them most. We Code Coaching is our premium program, we also offer a more traditional Code Class for those looking for either software driven or static curriculum teaching in a larger ratio. And during summer and holiday breaks, we offer Coding Camps. When available, programs are offered in both in-person and virtual formats. Contact us to find out more and get a free trial today.

What Kids Learn

We believe that every student learns in his or her own way, not only in what they want to work on, but how fast and how much. Our Coder Tree® is a visualization of our students' learning options as they grow and a sampling of some of the topics we teach. Find more details about what kids are learning by checking out our Coder Tree®.

Our Testimonials

  • "A very well designed curriculum for either group setting or one-on-one coaching. Dipali has put together knowledgeable and motivated staff to get our kids thinking through coding concepts. Love that my son looks forward to his class every week. Thank you The Coder School!"
    PC, TCS Cerritos Parent,
  • "We are very happy with the instruction as well as material that is being learned in the class. My son is enjoying coding while learning at the same time. It’s a win win!!! Also the owner of the school is very helpful and approachable for all of your questions and concerns!"
    LS, TCS Cerritos Parent ,
  • "My 7 and 9 year old boys share their excitement for their upcoming classes verbally with me each week — truly they say, “I’m so excited for coding class!” We started in quarantine, so it’s all taught over zoom (and they are typically zoomed out by distance learning), and yet they look forward to it greatly! Dipali was so communicative, open, and professional. We couldn’t be happier so far!"
    CJ, TCS Cerritos Parent,
  • "My son has been attending classes since November. He is now using terminology that is very sophisticated and thinking about his game design in ways I never would have imagined, coming from an 8-year-old. Even with classes moving online due to COVID-19, he has continued to grow his coding abilities. Great investment in your child!"
    SS, TCS Cerritos Parent,
  • "The Coder School has been a great experience for me. Having the opportunity to work with Dipali and the rest of the staff has been one of the best experiences I've had. Everyone is respectful and full of energy with each student that walks in and I enjoy every moment of it. "
    AD, TCS Code Coach,
  • "My boy has been enrolled since the grand opening. Thus far, Dipali and her staff have done an amazing job. My boy is learning C++. Highly recommend enrolling your child. "
    EJ, TCS Cerritos Parent,
  • "My daughter has been attending since December and she really liked the 2:1 coaching. All of the staff is very attentive and patient with students. "
    EM, TCS Cerritos Parent,
  • "The Coder School coding class has been the best out of school activity I could have ever chosen for my son. Having a child on the spectrum one can only imagine being hesitant of not only group but 1 on 1 as well, however, The Coder School has such an amazing staff who are not only caring, but patient as well. My son not only looks forward to his Friday classes, but asks when the next Coder camp will be. I recommend this program 100%, one of the absolutely best investments I've made for my son."
    NC, TCS Cerritos Parent,
  • "A very well designed curriculum for either group setting or one-on-one coaching. Dipali has put together knowledgeable and motivated staff to get our kids thinking through coding concepts. Love that my son looks forward to his class every week."
    AC, TCS Cerritos Parent,
  • "The Coder School Cerritos has patient, knowledgeable, friendly, and understanding coding instructors. Dipali is the friendliest managers you'll run into and she does an incredible job at hand-picking her coaches to work their magic to help your child discover their inner-love to code. My daughter is 10 yrs old, currently creating her second game. She loves her weekly class. You know the class is good when a 10 yr old looks forward to the class, starts with a smile and excitement and goes home with a huge sense of accomplishment; this is priceless to me as a father. "
    CV, TCS Cerritos Parent,
  • "My son's remote coding session went well. He was able to log on without any issues. He was fully engaged during the instruction block and seemed excited to explain what he had learned when he was done. An overall success. Thank you for making the sessions available for the kids during this very strange time."
    MB, TCS Cerritos Parent, ,
  • "My son has been attending The Coder School Cerritos/LaPalma for some time now. He really likes learning about new programs and gets excited to create new games. The school not only teaches but also communicates the lessons and progress for each child. The staff is very attentive and approachable. I would recommend it to everyone."

EXPERIENCE THE CODER SCHOOL AT YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL!

Our@School program offers our introductory Code Class at your school campus to provide more coding opportunities for students who can't make it to our in-house Code Class at our facility in Cerritos/La Palma.

These classes vary in duration, based on the specific school. Unless otherwise specified, all classes use "Scratch", which is a graphical drag-and-drop programming environment that was developed by MIT. We use that tool to teach the basic fundamentals of all computer programming languages. This includes functions, looping, conditional processing, variables, Cartesian coordinates and basic arithmetic operations, without needing to worry about the detailed syntax of a typed programming language.

Please contact us at (714) 735-8393 or cerritos@thecoderschool.com to learn how to establish an on-site coding program at your school or in a Virtual Setting.

COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY WORKSHOPS FOR GIRL SCOUTS

Have your Girl Scout Troop earn all of their new "Coding For Good" Badges by attending various Computer Technology Workshops at theCoderSchool!

Our 90-minute coding workshops are designed to help Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes or Seniors earn each of the new "CODING FOR GOOD" badges. Each workshop can accommodate up to 20 girls, at a very affordable cost of $18 per girl. 8 girl minimum.

Our Code Coaches® will introduce the girls in your troop to the world of coding using a variety of on-line tools, such as Scratch, a graphical, drag-and-drop coding language that was developed by MIT (for younger girls) or Python and HTML (for older girls). Additionally, we will have the girls read, discuss and sign the Girl Scout Internet Safety Pledge.

The workshop price also includes an iron-on Coder School "FUN PATCH", a completion certificate, inspiration poster, coder pencil and sticker for each girl.

Our Schools

Meet Our Owner and Manager

Dipali Patel

Hello Fellow Parents!

Welcome to The Coder School – Cerritos/La Palma! I am so thrilled to bring the #1 Coding School in Silicon Valley to SoCal. My name is Dipali Patel and I am the Owner/General Manager. I am a graduate of UC Davis with a degree in Psychology. I have 2 tech savvy boys who remind me each day the value and importance of technology in our world today. My background is a mix of HR and Education. For 6 years, I was the owner of a Kumon Math and Reading center in which I helped many students maximize their true potential with their academics. Since then I was doing Tech Recruiting for startups across California. One consistent feedback I received from the software engineers, developers, and programmers I recruited was that they wished there was a coding school around when they were younger. This feedback led me to opening The Coder School – Cerritos/La Palma. I couldn’t be prouder of being the first coding school in a community my family and I call home.

Meet Our Code Coaches® Too!

We've got plenty of Coaches, and tons of Comp Sci experience tucked inside! Who's the best Coach for you? I guess you'll have to come on in for a free trial to find out! Roll over a pic to see if we jotted down their background!
