Hello Encinitas! The #1 after-school coding program for ages 7-18 in Silicon Valley is now here in Encinitas.

Unlike other programs, our talented coaches are trained to tailor the lessons to your kid’s interests. 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.

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 Encinitas, 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. Conveniently located near great schools like The Grauer School or Flora Vista Elementary, theCoderSchool Encinitas sits East of 101 right on the crossing of Encinitas Blvd and El Camino Real. In addition to coding, we also offer fun camps like Roblox and Minecraft Camps. Our expert coaches have backgrounds from top universities like UC San Diego, and are ready to wow and amaze your kids.

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 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.

Our Schools

Meet Our Owners

Renata Brunelo

Hello! My name is Renata, and I’m the co-owner and general manager of theCoderSchool Encinitas. After three years running theCoderSchool North San Diego, we are so thrilled to bring this unique coding program to Encinitas! I’m a mother of two young children, and I’m amazed to see how this generation is already using so much of the digital world at such a young age. I’ve also worked multiple years at Bank of New York Mellon where I saw how technology is turning all businesses across the world upside down. The ability to understand coding will create countless opportunities for our kids’ futures in any path they choose to follow. I’m excited to help kids learn how to use today's tech to change the future! You can reach me anytime at renata@thecoderschool.com

Marcel Brunelo

Hi all! My name is Marcel, and I’m a co-owner and general manager at theCoderSchool Encinitas. I’ve spent my career working on the trading floor, where I saw firsthand how quickly computers were replacing traders and dramatically changing the way we worked. I was lucky to have received computer science education during my BA in Engineering and my MBA at Columbia Business School, and I have no doubt that high-quality coding instruction is a key tool for critical jobs of the future. Since 2017, I have been directly involved in the day to day of theCoderSchool North San Diego along with my wife, Renata, and we see that learning coding really changes the way kids think and problem solve. We have an awesome team here at theCoderSchool Encinitas, and we look forward to being part of your child's coding journey! You can reach me directly at marcel@thecoderschool.com.
