About

Code Horizon's co-founders believe in quality computer science education that begins as early as possible. All instructors have extensive experience in the field of computer science. They have taught computer science and other subjects, understanding the importance of quality pedagogy.

We founded Code Horizon in 2018 to provide a true coding class for students. All of us learned coding on our own. When we were young, we could only wish for a summer camp that taught us everything.

For the past few summers, we've been working as instructors in other STEM summer camps, but while teaching, we felt that students weren't learning anything and they didn't gain the full potential that the classes could have offered. That's why we founded Code Horizon this summer, to provide real classes where you learn real coding, but most importantly, to provide the skills necessary for future explorations in the field of computer science.
