New Member Spotlight

The Coder School-Chesterfield
157 Lamp and Lantern Village
Town & Country/ChesterfieldMO 63017 

At The Coder School, 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? Contact us for 25% off your first month!
Our core business is our weekly after-school programs, run throughout the year. Coding takes practice, and we believe getting kids to code consistently throughout the year is the only way they'll really learn to code! Our programs are for students at all skill levels, ages 7-18, and progress through a broad array of languages from Scratch to Python, Javascript, Java and much more. Our pricing is monthly and varies depending on the program.
