Year-Round Weekly Coding Classes for Kids In-person & Remote offered by theCoderSchool Mission Viejo.

In response to the COVID-19 situation, we are offering In-person & Remote zoom coding lessons. Your students can still receive quality instruction from our Code Coaches each week with a very low ratio of 2-students-to-1-instructor at our school or from the safety of your own home.

Small student to coach ratio (2:1), customized project-based coding lessons engage students, We work with each coder in their area of interest and work at their own pace. Learn Scratch, Python, C++, Unity, Java, HTML, Javascript, CSS, Minecraft, Roblox, Raspberry Pi, AI, App dev, and other technologies. Where do your interests take you?

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 the 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 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. 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.

Our Schools

General Manager

Maryam Rezaee

Hello! I’m Maryam Rezaee and I’m the Assistant General Manager of the CoderSchool Mission Viejo. In addition to holding a Bachelors in Computer Science and a Masters in Software Engineering, I have been advocating for positive student outcomes for the majority of my career. I’m excited to share the power of coding with the students of Mission Viejo since my early exposure had given me the opportunity to first come to the United States. I truly believe that helping students discover the right technology that inspires them will lead to a lifelong passion and confidence in technology. Please reach out to me at maryam@thecoderschool.com to see how we can open up the world of coding to your student!

District Manager

Dede Leonard

Hi! I’m Dede Leonard and I’m the District Manager of Tri-Valley CS with schools in Pleasanton, Irvine, San Ramon, Walnut Creek and Mission Viejo. As a homeschooler and avid equestrian, I enjoyed advocating for passion driven opportunities for youth to realize their potential and explore their interests.

I watched the technological revolution unfold, expand and encompass all aspects of our daily life. Early exposure to computer languages and coding concepts empower and enrich lives. After graduating from UC Berkeley, I spent over 20 years working as a product manager for Oracle, HP and Motorola and as an internet freelancer helping small businesses expand and improve through the use of technology.

I opened theCoderSchool San Ramon in 2018 to bring coding to kids in the Tri-Valley area and beyond. Our communities recognize the power of code. Learning to create with code empowers our next generations to become problem solvers and grow critical thinking skills.

Whether it is finding your passion, competing in a horse show or learning technology skills to allow self-expression, I am excited to be a part of that journey for kids and their families. Happy, confident kids become adults who see a world that is open to all possibilities! Contact me anytime at dede@thecoderschool.com.
