iCode Signs Agreement to Open in Georgia

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – iCode, a national computer science education franchise in the booming technology industry, announced today that it has signed an agreement to open a new location in Johns Creek. The school, slated to open in Spring 2021, will offer STEAM-based computer science education to students K-12 through proprietary curricula and a signature BELT program (similar to how belts function in the martial arts) in its high tech, fully equipped facility. Online classes will also be offered.

iCode differentiates itself in the fast-growing computer science education industry with its state-of-the-art facilities and proprietary curricula. According to the Bureau of Labor, computing occupations make up 67% of all projected new jobs in STEM fields and with only 45% of high schools teaching computer science, iCode is empowering the next generation of innovators through project-based learning, agile thinking and collaboration.

The new school in Johns Creek will serve students of all skill levels with programs that teach students how to build games, apps, websites and work with robotics. iCode also offers the unique iSports professional gaming league with competitions taking place after school, once per week for a five-week period.

“Johns Creek is a great addition to the growing list of iCode facilities – we have no doubt that the new location will make iCode a household name in the area for young students who are ready to enter the world of coding and technology,” said Abid Abedi, founder and CEO of iCode. “With Johns Creek being one of the largest suburbs of Atlanta, we’re excited to bring this opportunity to kids in the area. We’re ready to educate these kids of all ages and prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow through robust and world-class computer science education.”

Through its menu of offerings and several classrooms in each location, the brand has built a business that supports multiple revenue streams. As it plugs into franchise growth, iCode is equipped with a thorough support structure and exceptional leadership. The brand’s executive team brings high-voltage experience from blue-chip technology and franchise brands like GNC, Huawei, Sprint and Gold’s Gym.

Today’s announcement follows an eventful year for the brand, with signed agreements and upcoming openings in Boise, Idaho; Pittsburgh; Bellevue, Washington; Moorestown and Bridgewater, New Jersey; The Colony, Sugarland and Murphy, Texas; Goodyear, Arizona; and more. The Johns Creek location is the first in Georgia.

I wanted to give back to the community and contribute to the next generation of students having the same success as I did, through computer programming.”

iCode Opens in Goodyear

GOODYEAR, AZ – Kids and teens in Goodyear can now take a “byte” out of the world of coding.

As the technology industry continues to grow and power the everyday lives of Americans, there is often still a gap in the average curricula of today’s schools when it comes to teaching coding and computer science skills to children. Well, not any longer for kids and teens in Goodyear at Valor Preparatory Academy.

iCode, a national computer science education franchise, announced today that it is opening a new location in Goodyear. Online classes are currently available for students K-12. The Goodyear iCode opened its brick-and-mortar location in summer 2020 with its after school programs starting September 8, located at 13185 W Thomas Rd Building 2.

“I have always had a passion for the digital education space,” said Chase Eskelsen, the digital education expert who is bringing the iCode location to the area. “Adding iCode’s unique way of teaching children to code to Valor Preparatory Academy just seemed like a natural next step. We’re eager to bring these digital coding opportunities to both our students during the day and other children in the community throughout the afternoon and evening.”

With Eskelsen’s decade of experience and currently the COO for Verano Learning Partners, a not-for-profit education entity, and launching Valor Preparatory Academy, a 6-12 grade school with an award-winning digital curriculum, he is well equipped to operate the new location. The location will offer STEAM-based computer science education through proprietary curricula and a signature BELT program. The progressive BELT program graduates students to more advanced levels of coding and is built to keep students motivated to continue developing their skills similar to how belts function in the martial arts. With a convenient class schedule catering to any family’s schedule, after-school, online, summer and holiday programs will all be held at iCode Goodyear.

“We’re thrilled that Chase has opened his online classes to students in the Goodyear area,” said Abid Abedi, founder and CEO of iCode. “Now, students can have the opportunity to learn often overlooked skills that can benefit them for a future in tech. With custom programs built for every experience level, we’re looking forward to seeing how the kids and teens at Chase’s location develop their skills.”

iCode differentiates itself in the fast-growing computer science education industry with its state-of-the-art facilities and proprietary curricula. Through its robust menu of offerings and several classrooms in each location, the brand is able to serve students of all skill levels with programs that teach students how to build games, apps, websites, and work with robotics. iCode also offers the unique iSports professional gaming league with competitions taking place after school, once per week for a five-week period. In addition to the tactical abilities coding education offers, students benefit from developing soft skills, including critical thinking and problem-solving.

Today’s announcement follows an eventful year for the brand, with openings in Meridian, Idaho; Pittsburgh; Bellevue, Washington; Moorestown and Bridgewater, New Jersey; The Colony, Sugarland and Murphy, Texas; and Goodyear, Arizona.
