    Overview

    The Coding School is an international 501 (c)(3) non-profit that specializes in K-12 education in the emerging technologies of classical coding (Code Connects), quantum computing (Qubit by Qubit) and machine learning (TRAIN).

    With engineers at Google, Microsoft and MIT, we've created the most supportive and in-depth virtual emerging tech education possible! 

    Since 2017, The Coding School has been pioneering online STEM education to students around the world (125 countries and counting!).

    Our programs are completely virtual and include LIVE instruction from professionals at companies like NASA, Disney, Amazon and universities including Harvard, MIT and Brown. We offer year-long academic courses, summer camps, summer research programs and teacher professional development

    • It is great to see our son learning in a serious coding curriculum. His instructor has been excellent, and has taught him in a way that has increased his enthusiasm. I look forward to seeing his continued progress with The Coding School.

      - Middle school parent, Missouri - March 2, 2020
    • This course was incredible because of the curriculum, and my instructor. I was able to combine my interest in music into my coding projects which made learning coding awesome. My instructor was amazing and took time to explain concepts in a way I could easily understand them. He was the perfect teacher for me and I cannot wait to continue coding.

      - 8th grade student, PA - February 18, 2020
    • I enjoyed being able to learn what I wanted to instead of following a set curriculum. Learning 1-on-1 allowed me to move at my own pace and learn more advanced coding, which allowed me to expand my knowledge and move ahead of my peers in the field of computer science.

      - 10th grade school student, TX - February 16, 2020
    • This program's personalized structure and the quality of the instructors make it unique and extremely impactful. We get extremely excited when considering the long term value for our son.

      - Middle school parent, Pennsylvania - January 10, 2020
    • I like the 1-to-1 lessons because I can learn at my own pace. I've learned a lot more than I would have if I was in a classroom setting. And I can concentrate on the area of my interest too.

      - 7th grade student, GA - January 6, 2020
    • My favorite part of the 1-on-1 lessons is being able to do more hands on learning, such as being taught the material and then going right into applying it.

      - 10th grade student - Lisbon, Portugal - December 19, 2019
    • I loved my personal coding lessons because I could ask any question I wanted at any time and have it answered. I felt more confident because my instructor would keep helping me until I understood the material.

      - Caroline, 12th grade student - New Jersey - December 15, 2019
    • My daughter's instructor was very knowledgeable and engaging. She knew her stuff and made it fun and relevant.

      - High School parent, CT - December 6, 2019
    • I thank you so much for the opportunity you are giving to our kids! This is a great program and we really appreciate the hard work it must take to bring this type of learning to children everywhere! Zach had a great time with his instructor and thought he was really cool and interesting to learn from.

      - High school parent - Indiana - October 14, 2019
    • This 1-to-1 program provided a lot more focus for my son. He learned a lot over the summer and was able to learn at his own pace. He's eager to continue his lessons. He became more confident and more interested in coding with his 1-to-1 lessons.
