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.
