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 East Cobb, GA

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.

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. While 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 55 locations around the country, teaching over 6,000 students every week with the brainpower of 800+ expert Code Coaches®. We're proud of the impact theCoderSchool has had on communities everywhere since our brand was founded 7 and a half 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.

Cobb Fall Break Camps!

Let's get ready for Fall Break Coding Camps! Our camps run from 9am-3pm Mon-Friday.

Kids bring their own lunches and water bottles and we'll take care of the rest!

The camp runs all week but we realize some families can’t make it to the camp the entire week so we have options for partial camps as well.

Our Testimonials

  • "Thank you Jerry and the entire team for hosting our Girl Scouts troop. Our girls learned a lot in fun, exciting and welcoming environment. Jerry was amazing in scheduling the event. All the instructors were very knowledgeable, engaging and fun. Our girls didn’t want to leave and parents were very impressed with the school and the program. Highly recommend to anyone!!! Thanks again Jerry!"
    Izabela, Marietta
  • "Everyone was so kind and patient with my son with High Functioning Autism. I worried all week that a misunderstanding would happen, but it was a wonderful week. My son and his cousin really enjoyed it!"
    Tracy, Marietta
  • "The instructors are so friendly and energetic to see the kids and instill values and respect in their school environment. Social skills end up being taught as well as coding; so great!"
    James, Marietta
  • "My nine year old was ready for more advanced work than after school programs and camps can typically provide. At Coder’s School, he works in a two-on-one tutoring model with one of his best buddies and truly stellar staff to create meaningful (and candidly, pretty impressive!) games. Not only have I seen his coding skills take off, his creativity is blossoming! The tutor model is perfect for our needs, and I can’t believe our luck in having someone with Dolu’s incredible credentials teaching our kid! Just an incredible place, we feel very fortunate to have this available in our community!"
    Julie, Marietta
  • "My son has never particularly enjoyed Summer camp, but this place is a game changer. He LOVES it. The staff are wonderful and the kids are learning so much. I highly recommend the Coder School!"
    Kirsten, Marietta
  • "I had fun here and will want to come back later. 10/10. Super fun"
    Aidan, Marietta
  • "My family and I love TheCoderSchool! I was looking for an activity for my 10 year old that incorporated his love for technology but I also wanted a program that would encourage him to be creative, sharpen both his problem solving and social skills. TheCoderSchool fit the bill! My son enjoys going to his sessions and at the end he always leaves smiling. The staff is truly amazing. "
    Nilaja, Marietta
  • "Andy runs a professional establishment with a dedicated staff. Teachers strike a good balance between letting kids explore a bit freely when they want and keeping them focused on the curriculum for most of the time."
    Aviral, Marietta
  • "Our son loves the Coder School and his teacher, Dolu so much that we added a second weekly class. At 8 years old he is learning to type properly, utilize Scratch and he recently started learning Python! We really think in this ever-changing world of technology that this will give our son a big advantage in the future. The Coder School is a great addition to East Cobb and we highly recommend it!! "
    Carmen, Marietta

Meet Our General Manager

Divya Sarin

Hi I'm Divya and I am the General Manager of theCoderSchool - East Cobb! I am a highly motivated strategic thinker with 8 years of experience in communications, public relations, training and development. I have a bachelors in Chemistry and Masters in Communication Management. I am a peoples’ person, a patient listener, proactive worker with positive and contagious energy to work with full enthusiasm. I have extensive experience in working with school aged kids and have successfully managed after-school programs in Sandy Springs area.

In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. I believe after school programs succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society and help students develop their capabilities in technology to advance to a greater level. theCoderSchool is the best place to provide your child with this kind of opportunity where they can get an early start toward an amazing career! If you have any questions please email me at divya@thecoderschool.com, I'd love to speak with you soon!

Meet Our Owners

Hello! My name is Jerry and I am Co-Owner of theCoderSchool in East Cobb. Growing up I loved to play video games, but my mother would always tell me that I should learn how to create video games - not just play them. I took her advice and studied Computer Engineering in college which taught me circuit design and coding and led me to a career spent leading teams that have built applications on mobile PC’s, websites, desktop computers and smartphones. I credit my career success to my mother's early advice, to always learn what’s happening behind the scenes. My wife Kim and I are excited to bring this approach to learning technology to kids in the East Cobb area with theCoderSchool and believe it will unlock a world of opportunity for them to thrive in our technology-driven society. Want to learn more? Feel free to contact me directly at jerry@thecoderschool.com.

Welcome to our site! My name is Kim and I am Co-Owner of theCoderSchool in East Cobb. I truly believe that for a child to develop into a successful adult they must be challenged to think critically and problem solve; skills that will help them master ANY topic. I was drawn to theCoderSchool philosophy because it emphasizes the development of these skills while teaching kids to code in an environment where they are encouraged to learn and create.

With a PhD in Community Psychology, my research has primarily focused on youth development. I have spent over 15 years providing organizational and database development consulting services to non-profit organizations across the nation. I look forward to using my experience to help create the next generation of leaders.
