Hey Frisco! Great news! We have re-opened for in-person lessons and still offering online lessons too. Please reach out to us via email, phone call, or text if you want to come in and check it out. We're offering 30-minute in-person or virtual complementary trials! We're excited to be teaching Silicon Valley's #1 kids coding program in the DFW area. Technology is advancing everywhere, exciting the minds of kids who want to use it to make, play, and share ideas. Our classes create creative problem solvers and technical entrepreneurs who learn that they can use code to change their world for the better.

At theCoderSchool, we want to do more than just teach coding. We want aspiring coders to use their newfound 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 the form and we will 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 Frisco, TX

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. Situated near great schools like Wilma Fisher Elementary, Robert Cobb Middle and others, you'll find theCoderSchool Frisco a few miles west of Toyota Stadium, home of FC Dallas. In addition to coding, we also offer optional lab hours and from time to time, free online community events like Minecraft games nights.

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.

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.

Resources for virtual camps:

  • Computer

On Friday, we will be celebrating with a pizza party provided by us for their hard work and dedication to creating an end-of-the-week project presented by each kid explaining their projects. For any concerns regarding Covid-19, we have taken proactive measures. We have been hosting in-person lessons since June of 2020 without issues. We are currently considering information on a week-to-week basis to update measures.

    Our Testimonials

    • "My son has been taking classes at the Coder School for the past 3 years. First at the one in Flower Mound and now he goes to the school in Frisco. He absolutely loves it and has learned so much. He knows how to code in multiple languages and can create apps and games. We have been very impressed with his progress. He also attended a few of their camps as well and had a a lot of fun at them. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to learn computer coding."
      Tracy S, Frisco, TX
    • "Great school. Two of my kids enjoyed summer camps in the past and right now my 14 year old is doing the 2 on 1 code coaching. He's enjoying the freedom to create his own ideas for projects while having a coach available to give guidance and structure to the project, teaching new skills and answering questions. The code coaches seem to really enjoy coaching. When I pick up my son I see a lot of enthusiasm and camaraderie between the coach and my son, and they send detailed summary emails about what they worked on each week."
      Kate K, Frisco, TX
    • "My son’s coach is amazing and continues to update me weekly on my son’s progress with coder school. As of result of his detailed notes we were able to help my son move forward and make progress with his computer programming class! Thank you Alex Thomas we are truly appreciating all your time and effort."
      Raymond C, Frisco, TX
    • "TheCoderSchool is an amazing education program for children. My son has been doing coding with them for about a year, and he always looks forward to his lessons. COVID has presented some difficulties for everyone, but my son's coding lessons have gone on without a hitch. He enjoys the remote learning, and I think it allows him to be in a comfortable environment so he can focus more on the coding/learning. They have activities and programs in addition to coding lessons that look like fun. My son has not tried one of them out yet, but he is looking to in the coming months. If you are looking for ways to challenge your kids and give them an early start to coding, we think TheCoderSchool is a great place to start."
      Jason B, Frisco, TX

      Crissy Y, Frisco, TX
    • "I've been so impressed with our experience at The Coder School. So far my son has done 2 summer camps with one more to go and he is just as excited as day one. Every class has taught him something new and interesting. I love that there is finally something for someone like my son. These classes are worth every penny. The camps are lead by 1 adult and 2 student teachers giving every student plenty of one on one time. They take plenty of breaks away from the computer to clear their brain and interact socially. I know once the school year settles in we will be back for the Coder Coaching sessions."
