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!
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!
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 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.* Used by participating locations, check your location for availability
Each year, theCoderSchool partners with the Congressional App Challenge, a nationwide coding contest run by districts of the U.S. Congress. Take a look at some recent winners, or ask about our App Gallery to see more apps!
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!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're always looking for great Code Coaches. Shoot us an email with resumé to see if we're a fit!
As you and your family consider coding programs, it helps to keep in mind:
Whether the student wants to explore Minecraft modding in Minecraft camp, is interested in HTML, or wants to learn block-based coding like CSS, our interactive classes provide a great coding experience.
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®.
