Hey super-parent! We're happy you're looking for options to get your kids learning to code. It's SUCH an amazing skill to learn and will help your kids in more ways than you can imagine! We're super excited to be bringing Silicon Valley's #1 kids coding program to the area to help your kids get going, so read on and let's get our kids coding!

At theCoderSchool, we want to do more than just teach coding. We want aspiring coders to use their new found passion as a stepping stone to thinking outside the box, as a way to channel their ideas in a creative way and most importantly, to have fun. Interested? Fill out our form and we'll be in touch shortly to tell you 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 Folsom, 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.

Experience the Coder School at your local school!

Our @School program offers our introductory Code Class at your school campus to provide more coding opportunities for students who can't make it to our in-house Code Class at our facility in Folsom.

These classes vary in duration, based on the specific school. Unless otherwise specified, all classes use "Scratch", which is a graphical drag-and-drop programming environment that was developed by MIT. We use that tool to teach the basic fundamentals of all computer programming languages. This includes functions, looping, conditional processing, variables, Cartesian coordinates and basic arithmetic operations, without needing to worry about the detailed syntax of a typed programming language.

Please contact us at (530) 334-6620 or folsom@thecoderschool.com to learn how to establish an on-site coding program at your school.

COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY WORKSHOPS FOR GIRL SCOUTS

Have your Girl Scout Troop earn all of their new "Coding For Good" Badges by attending various Computer Technology Workshops at theCoderSchool!

Our 90-minute coding workshops are designed to help Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes or Seniors earn each of the new "CODING FOR GOOD" badges. Each workshop can accommodate up to 15 girls, at a very affordable cost of $17 per girl.

Our Code Coaches® will introduce the girls in your troop to the world of coding using a variety of on-line tools, such as Scratch, a graphical, drag-and-drop coding language that was developed by MIT (for younger girls) or Python and HTML (for older girls). Additionally, we will have the girls read, discuss and sign the Girl Scout Internet Safety Pledge

Please contact us at (530) 334-6620 or folsom@thecoderschool.com for info and schedule availability for this unique educational opportunity for your troop.

Meet our GM/Owner

Dheepa Seenivasagam

Hello, Welcome to the CoderSchool Folsom!

I was about eleven when the first time I had my hands on a computer. Still remember the awe, joy and thrills I experienced that day. It was this excitement that transformed my choice of learning, career and life. I majored in Computer Science, started my career as a software developer and worked in the Information Technology division of many different industries.

Our Ancestors changed the world when they discovered Fire and invented Wheels. In this age, Coding gives the potential to be the Artists who create the next new world. With technological acceleration all around us in Autonomous Cars, Smart Homes & Health Care, innovation is everywhere. And Coding is at the core of these innovations.

We have the potential to enable our next generation to transform their imagination into a tangible creation - in a way that is a playful & a joyful experience. Whatever they choose to become in their lives, knowing to Code will give them the power to accelerate, excel and maximize their potential.

I am super thrilled to be part of this journey where Kids develop a love for logic at an early age in a super fun and engaging way.

Meet Our Code Coaches® Too!

We've got plenty of Coaches, and tons of Comp Sci experience tucked inside! Who's the best Coach for you? I guess you'll have to come on in for a free trial to find out! Roll over a pic to see if we jotted down their background!
