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. theCoderSchool has a staff of hundreds of 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. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley and a few miles from Apple's famed spaceship headquarters, theCoderSchool Cupertino serves kids from top ranked schools like Monta Vista and William Faria and more. Operating since 2015, our Cupertino location has an experienced and expert coding staff with a diverse background, including our General Manager John, who has a Computer Science degree from Stanford and an MBA.

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.

theCoderSchool System

We're part of a nationwide system of passionate owners in over 50 locations around the country, teaching well over 5,000 students every week with the brainpower of 750+ expert Code Coaches®. We're proud of the impact theCoderSchool has had on communities everywhere since our brand was founded 7 years ago, way back in August of 2014. In short, we know a thing or two about teaching kids to code - so let's get to it!

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®.

Tracking Progress

Our suite of proprietary tools* chart weekly progress by tracking concepts and apps, and longer term progress by identifying skills to build their individual Coder Tree®. Get an idea of our progress tools by clicking through a Sample Student's Student Portal to see for yourself.

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.

Meet Our Code Coaches® Too!

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 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®.
