Hey Cupertino!!  Whether you're a seasoned veteran at Apple or your kids go to Monta Vista, we know that you know code!  Cupertino has one of the highest concentrations of engineers in the bay area, and we're excited to have a Coder School here!

Coder School is a new kind of after school coding program that focuses on the individuality of each student, customizing our teachings depending on their skills and the desires.  From graphical languages like Snap or Scratch to more powerful stuff like Python or Javascript and even the advanced coding like Java and C++, we're ready to inspire you and amaze you.  Drop us a line, check out our video below, or swing by to find out more!

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 Cupertino, 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! That's where our Code Coaches® come in, providing a long-term mentoring relationship to teach kids to code, from someone who's a coder themselves.

Our coding school's flagship program, Code Coaching®, combines a super-small teaching ratio of typically 2:1 or 1:1 with individualized curriculum so kids are able to move at their own pace, doing things that interest them most. This program works for kids of all ages and skill levels. From game development to web apps, Python to Java, or even niche technologies like AI and beyond, our Code Coaches can help your kids achieve their programming 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. Our lessons are taught in-person at our schools where available, or can be online for social distancing. Fill out our form above to get a free trial today!

Our Coder Tree®

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. Like real trees, our students' coding journeys are unique from each other, but all require strong foundations and trunks to support their higher, advanced branches. Need a magnifying glass? Here's a zoomable view.

Tracking Progress

Custom coding means tracking progress is even more important! Our suite of proprietary tools* does just that. Our Coder Progress and Notes+ systems chart weekly progress through concept tracking and freeform notes. App Reviews track longer term progress by identifying current skills to build their individual Coder Tree®. Finally, our Student Portal is a one-stop shop to see it all and then some! Confused? It's complicated! Get an idea by clicking through a Sample Student's functional Student Portal to see for yourself.

Camps for 2021!

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL! Up to $175 off camps!

Let's get ready for year round camps!

Our in-person camps (Monday-Friday 9a-3p), are held at our sweet coding facilities (when possible) and leverage goodies from our year-round programs to create a uniquely collaborative environment where the kids work together, code together, and have a rockin’ fun summer together! Every Friday, we do a fun pizza party on us and demo day so that the kids can show off their projects. We work with students from novice to expert!

Our online camps are run remotely over an interactive web meeting from 9:30a-2:30p, with an hour break at 11:30a. Each student will complete a project to present on the last day of camp.

    Student, Cupertino
  • "My 12 yr old daughter is really looking forward to her classes and in the last 4 weeks she showed so much improvement. Her Code Coach was able to figure out her strength and weakness and she is able to support that in a way so my daughter has a great experience with coding. She customized programs just to challenge her. She is fun, patient and very supportive. She is also a great role model showing that women/girls can be great coders too."

Meet Our General Manager

John Ekins

Hi everyone! My name is John and I'm the General Manager of theCoderSchool in Cupertino. I wish there was something like theCoderSchool when I was growing up. My after school activities were sports, church, and piano. I did not start programming until I arrived to college, where I discovered how substantial it is to learn how to code. I graduated from Stanford with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and earned an online MBA.

I really enjoy web development, such as Progressive Websites and Hybrid Mobile Apps. I like that the technology has progressed so that developing an html5 website gives you the features of offline use, displays great on any size screen, scales easily, and even deploys to native app stores like iOS or Android. With students, other than web development, I enjoy teaching the pygame library using the Python language on the Raspberry Pi and various other projects on the board. I also like to cover robots and program them using C code on an Arduino board. I can be reached at john@thecoderschool.com.
