What Makes In-Person Classes So Special?
While every coder is different, we find that the in-person experience of learning to code provides unique opportunities for kids to grow. Our engaged instructors help kids make connections between concepts and build moments of mentorship. Hands-on activities bring chances for kids to socialize, make friends, and work through challenges together. And for parents, one-on-one time with teachers before and after class provide important points of contact throughout the semester.
Your coder will...
- Learn to code!
- Be challenged at their individual level.
- Build grit, a growth mindset, and computational thinking skills.
- Balance screen time with hands-on activities, games, and more.
- Make friends and explore opportunities for teamwork.
Not Your Typical Coding Class
At The Coding Space, we specialize in providing a safe and inclusive learning environment for kids to have fun, be challenged, and discover their passions. Our teachers never lecture; instead, they ask targeted questions using the Socratic Method to get students thinking and problem solving on their own. By focusing on the development of computational thinking skills, intellectual confidence, self-expression, and independence, our students learn to code while growing as thinkers, learners, and leaders.
What to Expect in a TCS Class
Class Kickoff & Challenges
Each week, students are challenged to learn new programming techniques and stretch their minds in fresh, interesting ways. We'll kick off each class with a warm welcome and ideas and inspiration for new challenges to tackle.
We challenge our students to create projects as unique as they are. Students receive individualized attention and curriculum customization through experienced teachers and a 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio. Using the Socratic method, our teachers ask questions aimed at helping students discover their own solutions to problems. Whether your child is new to coding or already building their own websites and projects, students progress through our curriculum at the pace that’s right for them.
Time to stretch, tinker, and play. Students take a break from their screens and discover the opportunities to create and explore that exist all around them. Centered in the world of STEM, these activities range from to cryptography to engineering to emoji encoding. These opportunities support cognitive, emotional, and social development, allowing students to grow in fun new ways.
Each class ends with a reflection on the day's work, lessons learned, and future goals.

COVID Safety Measures
The Coding Space will follow all guidelines and precautions as outlined by the CDC and government mandates to ensure the health and safety of our coders. All teachers will be fully vaccinated.
Our Flexible Refund Policy
We are able to provide a full refund for cancelled registrations up to one week before the start of the term. After this point, we are no longer able to provide refunds. However, we can accommodate rescheduling. Class cancellations must be made 24 hrs in advance of the scheduled class to be eligible for rescheduling. We want to make sure our teachers have time to prepare, and know what to expect class to class, week to week. It makes for a better learning experience for our awesome students! Make-ups are subject to availability and require 3 days notice (i.e. for a Monday make-up, the request must be made by 4 pm on Friday). In addition, make-ups that are scheduled aren’t eligible for rescheduling a second time. Make-ups can't be rolled over to a future term.

We believe that everyone has a right to equitable education in a safe and inclusive learning environment and are committed to increasing access to our high quality coding programs. Our scholarship program accounts for 25 percent of the students we teach. Our long-term goal as we work towards educational equity is to reach 50 percent of our students through at-cost and pro-bono services.
