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 Academies are week-long courses designed to teach students the fundamentals of coding in the environment of a collegiate campus. With comprehensive curricula concentrated in five days, SCAs will give students the knowledge, guidance, and resources they need to understand the basic functions of a code as well as designing and creating their own programs. To best address students with differing experience in the field, we offer two programs in coding: SCA Level I and SCA Level II. SCA Level II draws and builds on skills introduced in SCA Level I (successful completion of Level I guarantees acceptance into Level II), or taught in a college-level computer science class.
Our curriculum, designed by Harvard students concentrating in computer science, is geared towards teaching high school students the fundamentals of coding. Topics covered include:
This coming summer, there will be an extended Summer Coding Academy II, which focuses on dynamic websites and abstractions of code.
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.
Financial aid is offered on a case-by-case basis. To reach out regarding financial aid, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are other opportunities available to reduce the cost of tuition. In addition to the 10% sibling discount, we also offer a referral program where if someone you refer registers for the program, you will receive a percentage off the final tuition payment; the more people who register, the greater your discount.
