Our Story
Inspired.
We are parents, educators, geeks, and entrepreneurs. Our goal is to inspire every student young or old to believe that they can achieve their dreams.  We are passionate about instilling confidence, critical thinking, problem solving, and curiosity into every student we meet.
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination encircles the world." Albert Einstein.
Empowered.
Like most code academies, we too believe that coding is the future. Learning to code gives kids skills beyond those at a keyboard. But we also believe that it shouldn't stop there. To truly give our students the skills to change the world, we teach a full stack approach. All of our courses and camps teach:
  • Design
  • Computing
  • Building
  • Sharing
These are the skills they will need to create tomorrow's next big thing.
