Curious about what it's like to attend The Academies? Our Academies Experience packet gives an inside look into how a week at the Academies will launch you to new heights.
The Summer Coding Academy is a week-long, intensive introduction to the enterprise of computer science through the lens of programming in Python. In addition to the overarching themes of abstraction and algorithmic thinking, students will learn fundamental building blocks of procedural programming including variables, conditions, loops, functions, and file input/output. By the end of this course, you will be able to further study all that can be accomplished with Python or bootstrap yourself into learning another language; empowering you to become a life-long student of computer science!
Our curriculum, designed by Harvard students concentrating in computer science, is geared towards teaching high school students the fundamentals of coding. Topics covered include:
Program tuition covers one week of instruction, lunch, and snacks. Our program grants exclusive access to the people and unmatched resources at Harvard.
Please note that this tuition does not include housing or computers for the students. Each student must find their own accommodations and bring an internet–capable computer. Tuition for a five-day session of the Summer Coding Academy: $795.
