Who are we?

Code Ninjas is the nation’s fastest growing kids coding franchise. In our center, children of ages 7-14 learn to code in a fun, non-intimidating way – by building video games. Kids have a blast and can’t wait to come back to continue their journey from white belt to black belt. Parents are thrilled as their children gain confidence and new skills including coding, math, logic, and problem-solving. Our core promise is: Kids have fun, parents see results. We truly believe in these words – they are written on the walls in our center.
