The League of Amazing Programmers

We are a non-profit school teaching programming to kids in 5th – 12th grade.  Our after-school program helps to prepare students for high tech jobs of the future. Our comprehensive 10-level curriculum can take 4-8 years to complete.  Along the way student progress from novice to expert programmersStudents receive UCSD Extension credits for each completed level. Upper level students prepare for the AP Computer Science and the Oracle Certified Programmer Exam. Students are mentored and encouraged to volunteer their time as peer-to-peer teachers, work on apps for local non-profits and pursue internships in the community. 

The League depends heavily on volunteer teachers who are professional programmers that volunteer their time as teachers and mentors.  We offer financial aid to students in underserved communities, providing access to programming education for students who are college or work bound.

We offer classes in Carmel Valley, Downtown Central Library, Malcolm X Library and several school sites in San Diego county.
