Who runs the program?

SCA is brought to you by Harvard Student Agencies Tutoring. HSA is the world's largest student-run business and the original Harvard start-up. Check us out on our website at hsa.net.

How much does it cost?


What does the tuition cover?

We will provide computers, snacks, and, of course, knowledge! However, we are unable to provide housing.

Do you provide lunch? What if my child has food allergies?

Yes, we do provide lunch. We do our best to be accommodating for food allergies, so we ask that you let us know when you sign up if your child has any food allergies so that we can make the proper plans.

How much experience do I need for SCA?

SCA is designed for all levels of experience! No experience is necessary and you will still have a lot to learn if you have some experience.

What if my child already has a lot of experience coding? Is this program suitable for them as well?

Absolutely! Anyone is welcome to participate in our program. We will do our best to put students who have similar levels of experience together in order to maximize the amount of learning each student can achieve during our program. We teach the basics in four different coding languages, while also giving students time to work with those languages they are more unfamiliar with. Even if your child has taken AP Computer Science A, they are more than welcome in our program.

Is financial aid available?
