About NextGen Coding Camps for High Schoolers
Coding has a place in almost every aspect of our daily lives. It’s by far the most versatile and exciting skill you can learn whether you’re prepping for your senior year of high school, college, or hoping to be an entrepreneur after you graduate.

Why learn coding in high school?
There’s no question that all students should learn how to code during high school. This invaluable skill is what runs our entire world! How many times have you looked at your phone today alone? That’s all powered by code.
