South Bend Code School helps students learn the fundamentals of web development & design, software craftsmanship, & entrepreneurship.

South Bend Code School is an app incubator for teens and young adults that grants students experience conceptualizing, designing, and building an application that works towards solving real world problems. Whether a student is looking for a highly employable skill set or a better foundation to propel them into higher education, South Bend Code School is here to help.

At the end of the program, all Code School students present their applications at a major tech company, such as Google or Facebook, and exit with a portfolio of work. Additionally, students have the opportunity to join Code Legion, a weekly class for students who have been through our initial program and want to continue building and learning with technology.

No experience? No problem! South Bend Code School is committed to teaching all students how to code, regardless of their previous exposure to technology.
