Mission Bit offers a two year course track that exposes high school students to multiple coding languages. We design our classrooms with an equity lens that emphasizes building community and rigorous learning objectives that focus on building projects. Fall and Spring courses run for 13 weeks, 4 hours a week. During the summer, we run intensive introductory and advanced courses that last four or six weeks, respectively. Each term students take a field trip to a tech company, receive career and college advising related to the technology field, and showcase their projects to a large community of supporters during our Demo Day event at the end of the semester.
There are no GPA requirements and any student that attends a San Francisco public school (including charter schools) is encouraged to apply.
Mission Bit offers free courses in coding for SF high school students, starting with beginners who have never coded before. Although courses start today, they are accepting applications until 2/4 at 5:00 PM. Classes are held at Mission high school after school hours.
