The goal of HackHighSchool is to provide equality of access to computer science and digital literacy for the 21st Century to all high school students age 14-18.
HackHighSchool(H2S) is a free, 8-month long coding course starting from September to May and where the students are also prepared for the AP Computer Science Principles (AP CSP) exam.

Implement the HackHighSchool curriculum anywhere for free!
Together we provide
The HackHighSchool curriculum is designed to be implemented easily elsewhere. It’s low-cost, scalable program that requires minimal resources. It’s a tool to help any teacher offer computer science education with in-person support and learning so you can offer coding education to your students.
Who provides what
42 provides our gamified education platform, project-based coding curriculum, IT support for automated aspects, and education and training on our peer-to-peer pedagogy. You’ll need to provide enrollment, communication/marketing about the program, and logistics for student/parent needs. You’ll also need a meeting space and computers as well as mentors (we might be able to help make connections.)
For more information
Schools and coding groups are already implementing the high school curriculum based on our Saturday Coding Camp called HackHighSchool. For more information, please contact Sangita Nath, our HackHighSchool Program Director, by email.
