How does SC Codes work?

SC Codes is an online platform offering coding courses and mentorship opportunities to anyone who wants access to technology education. Courses can be completed at your own pace, in your own home — regardless of your technological background. We have resources for students brand new to coding as well as courses for professional developers looking to add a new skill. We’ll also connect you with experienced programming mentors in your area who can offer guidance and support in-person or online. And it’s all free of charge.

From your first coding lesson to your career path, we’re here to help you get where you want to be. We partner with local organizations and volunteers around the state to offer mentorship and support to students taking our courses and to graduates looking for the next right step.

  • Modules for all skill levels
  • Mentor support (in-person and online)
  • Testing and progress reports

After completing a set of modules, SC Codes will connect you with the next best step toward reaching your career goals. We’ve got a network of experienced mentors and business partners dedicated to helping you find internships or apprenticeships, direct employment, or further training and education.
