Hello Mission Viejo and south Orange County! The #1 after-school coding program for ages 7-18 in Silicon Valley is now open in Mission Viejo. Whether your coder is brand new to Scratch or already building distributed Python programs, we can help him or her get to the next level. Unlike other after-school coding programs, our talented coaches are trained to tailor the lessons to your kid’s interests. This unique approach fosters a lifelong passion for building 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.

Can't get your kids from their daytime school to our after-school classes? We have the solution!! We have partnered with "HopSkipDrive" (a ride-sharing service exclusively for kids) to provide very safe and secure transportation for your children from one school to another. We'll even provide a discount coupon worth up to $20 for their first ride if you enroll your student in one of our coding programs.

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 Mission Viejo, 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.

"To give you an idea of how much he is liking it ...he told me this morning that the whole online camp day felt like only an hour yesterday because it was so much fun."
- Hisham R.
"What you have brought [here] is simply amazing! Your coaches are fantastic and I couldn't ask for a better learning environment for my son to do his thing and expand his knowledge!" - Bonnie D.

General Manager

Will Tungpagasit

Hi! My name is Will and I'm the interim General Manager of theCoderSchool Mission Viejo. I took my first programming class with my dad at community college when I was just 14. I can tell you first-hand how knowing how to code has put me ahead of my peers throughout my education and career. I love working with kids and am truly grateful for the opportunity to inspire and teach the next generation of innovators! I studied Computer Engineering at CalPoly, SLO. I've been an analyst at Deloitte Consulting, 2nd engineer/1st product manager at TaskRabbit (Silicon Valley startup with $30M+ in VC funding), and founder of several consumer web/app startups in San Francisco. Got questions about the school? Email me at mv@thecoderschool.com.

What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding for kids? We're among the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®.
