Coding Classes for Kids available In-Person and Online

At theCoderSchool Fremont, we want to do more than just teach coding. We have created a fun and collaborative space where our students and Code Coaches® can work together on their own projects and take their coding skills to the next level.

In addition to teaching them languages such as Scratch, Python or Java, we want to make sure that our students feel empowered and learn other real-life skills such as teamwork, collaboration and presentation skills.

The best way to learn about our programs is to register for a FREE On-line, or In-Person, Sample Lesson. It will allow you to meet our staff, get your questions answered, and see if your student enjoys our teaching methods. You can use the blue form to the right to register for the sample lesson, without any cost or obligation.

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 Fremont, 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.

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 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.

    R B, Fremont
  • "From my point of view, I have nothing but great things to say about The Coder School in Fremont. They're always there when I need them. I see them bend over backwards to help me and most especially my son. The instructors there are knowledgeable and personable to all students. They're super helpful in anything that you need. The ratio of student to instructor there is great. I know that my son is getting ample and personable time with the instructors there. My son is coding! I'm excited, but also dumbfounded at the rate that he's learning. From my son's point of view, he loves being there. The day that he goes, he can't wait to get there and I usually have to drag him out of there at the end of his session. He LOVES all the instructors there. And on the weekends when they have open hours to students, the instructors and workers are more than accommodating to my son. Every weekend he asks to go there and he'll use up every second to be there. He loves the environment. It is a fun learning atmosphere to be in. I can't get over the fact that he loves coding this much -- and that he's learning it from such a young age. He’s also made friends there. It us a safe and friendly environment for kids of all ages. I know, I’ve seen it myself. In my opinion, there isn't any other place that I would rather have my son be. The more he's there, the more he wants to code. Luis and his crew have something special there. I would highly recommend for any parent/student to go check out this amazing coding school. It is one of the best investments I’ve ever made and I know that it will do wonders for my son’s future. Thank you to the Coder School! "
    Rex A., Fremont
  • "My child has been with Coach Luis for two years. I’m impressed with the progress she has made in coding. The Coder School has helped students build foundations from the beginning and slowly progresses to the level the student is able to understand and engaged. My child is able to program and create video game and using python to program a robotic arm to move. It is very exciting to see how much my child looks forward to class. Learning to code helps with logical thinking and problem solving skills. I highly recommend the Coder School to any parents who are interested in getting their child involve in coding. It’s a useful knowledge to have in this tech world."
    Nina G., Fremont
  • "My son has been going to the Coder school now for almost 4 years and really enjoys it. I have seen him create everything from interactive hockey games to web pages all from the beginning. He has worked with a number of programs including Python and HTML and every time I see his work, I am more and more pleased. The most important thing is that he is happy and enthusiastic about coding and really enjoys it."
    Kathryn K., Fremont
  • "The Coder School Fremont are an impressive team which delivers on their promises and are stand out performers in the Tutoring sector. My son is happy with his coach and is always excited to go to his class."
    Nina P., Fremont
  • "I have been pleasantly surprised by the consistently high quality service delivered by the coder school Fremont and would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a hard working company in the Tutoring sector."

Meet Our Owner and GM

Luis Lopez-Echeto

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Luis and I'm the General Manager and Owner at theCoderSchool in Fremont, CA. As a child I was always intrigued by technology and computers in particular which led me into getting a BSc in Microelectronic Engineering - designing and building the electronic circuits inside computers, as well as an MSc in Software Development from RIT in Rochester, NY. Thanks to my background, I've had a very successful and rewarding career and I got to work with some of the largest software companies out there like Oracle, LinkedIn and Microsoft as well as hundreds of other companies in many different fields.

My biggest passion is learning, and what better way to learn than to teach children. I'm extremely excited to be able to share my experience with our students and empowering them to take control of their destiny and, of course, change the world =) Want to know more? Feel free to reach out to me directly at
