Explore, learn, and build skills this summer.

Check out the CTE summer programs available for middle and high school students at public and charter schools throughout the District below.

DC Can Code Two Week Camp for Rising 6th–9th Graders

Free two week camps will be offered at a number of DC public and public charter school sites across the District each summer. This program is designed to introduce rising 6th– 9th grade students in the District to Swift, an easy-to-follow programming language used to create apps by professional developers around the world. Join this program to get a head start on Informational Technology (IT) and Engineering Programs of Study, create your own apps, collaborate with like-minded peers, and make connections in higher education and the tech industry. All devices will be provided.

Students interested in joining the two week camp, and schools interested in becoming a DC Can Code site next year, can contact Francesca Glover at Francesca.Glover@dc.gov or (202) 856-4889.
