Hey super-parent! We're happy you're looking for options to get your kids learning to code. Introducing coding concepts to your kid can help them succeed in more ways than you can imagine! At theCoderSchool, our Code Coaching programs, classes, and coding camps can help provide the fundamentals needed for your child to develop problem solving skills, creativity, and useful coding skills that may help in their future career.
We believe that our job is to do more than just teach coding. We want aspiring young coders to use their new found passion as a stepping stone to thinking outside the box, channel their ideas in a creative way and most importantly, to have fun. If you are interested in introducing your kids to coding, fill out our form and we’ll be in touch with you shortly!
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!
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®.
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.* Used by participating locations, check your location for availability
Each year, theCoderSchool partners with the Congressional App Challenge, a nationwide coding contest run by districts of the U.S. Congress. Take a look at some recent winners, or ask about our App Gallery to see more apps!

Hey Parents! I’m excited to bring the #1 Coding School in Silicon Valley to my hometown! My name is Teddy Amkie and I am the Owner / General Manager of theCoderSchool - Santa Monica. I am a geek at heart who turned my passion for learning into a passion for teaching. I’ve previously taught music for 8 years prior to becoming a Software Engineer. I am currently a sitting CTO at a software solutions / consulting company which keeps me up-to-date on the current state of tech.
Having started as a coach at theCoderSchool - Walnut Creek, I quickly found my passion for teaching returned. I quickly became a Manager at theCoderSchool - Pleasanton, and now excited to become a franchisee myself!
We're always looking for great Code Coaches. Shoot us an email with resumé to see if we're a fit!
What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids
