When we speak with iCode franchisees, we find that their decision to start a franchise school is often as much of a personal decision as it is a business decision. While the iCode franchise benefits are apparent in our proven model and system, part of what attracts owners to our franchise is the ability to make a difference in children’s lives.
iCode fuses the best of education and tech to create proprietary curricula that help kids foster a passion for computer science from a very young age. See how your iCode education franchise can make a positive impact on your students’ academic performance, self-confidence and more.

At iCode, we understand that kids perform best when they’re able to channel their energy into activity. Rather than have kids sit through long lectures, each class combines instruction with hands-on practice to keep students engaged. Every program has a goal, whether that be to design a video game, create custom media or program a robot. Kids get excited to apply their learned skills to their project and watch code turn into something tangible.
Education at iCode is designed to bring the best out of students while also seeking out to be a fun avenue for students. Other than the obvious monetary benefits you get when you start a franchise school, iCode offers you the chance to enhance the learning curve of kids right from their developmental stage.
iCode’s results-focused approach to education helps students develop self-confidence while enhancing their tech skills. We don’t do grades or tests. As kids grow within their program, they’ll reach benchmarks of success that enable them to move onto the next level. When kids come to iCode, they’re not attending just another classroom.
We don’t want students’ creativity and sense of adventure to be bogged down by grades and assessments. By focusing on the outcome of their projects, students create a personal connection to their work.
As our world becomes more reliant on technology, the industry continues to look for new talent. Between 2019 and 2029, the job outlook for software development is expected to grow by 22%! This is much higher than average across most other industries. This career path also pays incredibly well. Software developers’ median reported salary in 2020 was $110,140.
Many parents come to iCode because their children have exhibited an interest in tech and they’re hoping to help their kids prepare for college and beyond. So when you start a franchise school, you will give kids the tools they need to pursue a bright, lucrative future in tech.
An often-overlooked benefit of coding classes is the soft skills students gain through their experiences. Your iCode franchise school will maximize the effectiveness of soft skill development through intentional instruction that encourages kids to think critically, collaborate with others and exercise their creativity.
An iCode class can teach kids the power of teamwork and consistency in the same way a sports team can. These types of skills are applicable in all areas of life, not just tech. No matter where your students go when they leave iCode, they’ll be more prepared because of your education franchise.
We’re on a mission to help kids in communities across the U.S. explore a passion for tech, and you can join us. When you start a franchise school with iCode, you get the opportunity to build an in-demand business while putting good out into the world.
