Code Missouri is an initiative to expand high-quality computer science programs across Missouri with a focus on rural school districts.
About Code Missouri
CodeHS launched Code Missouri, an initiative to help close the computer science opportunity gap between urban and rural districts in Missouri. Coding is the new foundational skill and all students deserve the opportunity to take computer science courses at their local schools, regardless of their area code.
For the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years, CodeHS offered CodeHS Pro and professional development to 19 rural school districts in Missouri for free! Check out the selected Code Missouri Partners here.

" I strongly believe every child has to have the opportunity to learn this critical skill [computer science]. It's becoming fundamental, just like reading and writing and math."
- President Barack Obama
What is CodeHS?

CodeHS partners with the CSforAll Consortium, a collaborative community of more than 400 partner organizations, and the national hub for the Computer Science for All movement.
Code Missouri Pilot
The pilot school for Code Missouri is Fayette High School in Fayette, Missouri.
"Learning to code unlocks and connects the rural student to career opportunities that are seemingly 'invisible and unknown’ in rural areas of the state. Even for the student not interested in pursuing a career in computer science, learning computational thinking provides the student the tools to understand, evaluate, and solve complex problems."
- Roberta Carson, School Counselor
"CodeHS has made it possible for my school to offer computer science courses to our students... students of all capabilities are able to learn computer science and excel in the classroom."
- Kevin, CS Teacher, Fayette, Missouri
