The Flatiron School, Palmer Trinity offering student coding school

Joining a wave of new coding-school options for South Florida high school students, Palmer Trinity School of Palmetto Bay is teaming up with The Flatiron School, a New York City school well-known for web and mobile development, to offer immersive coding courses to local high school students this summer.

Students aged 13 to 18 enrolled in The Flatiron Pre-College Academy at Palmer Trinity will learn how to build and launch web applications using tools such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Ruby. The curriculum is based on The Flatiron School’s rigorous Web Development Immersive, which is known for helping graduates launch careers as developers at The New York Times, MakerBot, Etsy, Kickstarter , J.Crew and other companies. The Flatiron School has been expanding its programming to other cities, including Miami.

“The goal of Flatiron Pre-College Academy at Palmer Trinity is to give students a comprehensive understanding of the technologies used to build some of the world’s most popular websites and applications, and to broaden their horizon of what’s available in this sector,” said Patrick Roberts, Head of School.

There are five courses offered – beginner and advanced software engineering, beginner and advanced web design, and entrepreneurship – in three full-time two-week sessions starting in June. The two-week course is $2,000, and scholarships will be available for students who are already active in the technology community or who have demonstrated financial need. For more information:
