Because in 2016, knowing how to code is as important as

knowing how to read and write.

Our mission

The goal of CodeHS is to spread the knowledge of computer science by offering well-crafted instructional materials supported continuously by the quality, personal attention of our enthusiastic tutors. We believe that everyone has the ability to learn computer science, and we want to help them do so.

Our story

Jeremy and Zach met in their freshmen dorm at Stanford where they started and ran The Stanford Flipside, the satirical newspaper on campus. They both majored in CS and participated in the section leader program for 3 years, helping teach and run the intro courses. They started CodeHS their senior year so they could give everyone around the world the same opportunities as Stanford CS students.

We help schools everywhere teach students to code

Zach Galant Cofounder

Zach has been teaching programming since he was 14, when he started Tera Byte Video Game Creation Camp, a summer camp that teaches kids to make their own video games. At Stanford, he majored in computer science and was a section leader for the CS 106 classes for 2 years. He was also the TA for CS 105 and CS 106B as a senior.

Zach was on the Stanford Ski Team for 4 years. He loves to play soccer and write comedy, and he dares you to argue with him that Dirk isn't a top 20 NBA player of all time.

Jeremy Keeshin Cofounder

Jeremy helped teach computer science at Stanford for three years. He was a section leader for the introductory classes for 6 quarters, and was the head TA of Stanford's CS106A for all 3 quarters of the 2011-2012 school year. He was lucky enough to give three lectures to CS106A his Senior Fall, which is the largest and most popular class at the school.

Some of his hobbies include comedy writing and juggling, and he started a satirical newspaper at his high school called The Flipside, and then one at Stanford called The Stanford Flipside. He also enjoys puzzles and riddles, so if you hear a really good one, you should tell him.
