What does the school of the future look like? If you want a glimpse, check out the University Area Computer Science Immersion School. This magnet is the only full computer science coding school in North Carolina. That’s right – the only full computer science coding school in the state – here in CMS! Through a partnership with Code to the Future, students will go from playing with Legos to building robots and learning Java. What else is exciting about North Carolina’s first coding school?
Full staff support
Code to the Future will provide an instructional coach and implementation manager to the University Area Computer Science Immersion School.

With Principal Toyia Matthews at the helm, there’s no limit to how far this school can go. Since 2013, Matthews has served as assistant principal at Irwin Academic Center, a Talent Development/Language Immersion Magnet School. Prior to joining Irwin Academic Center, she he was an assistant principal at Oaklawn Language Academy and media specialist at Croft Community School. She’d love to meet you at an information session from 6-8 p.m. at the University YMCA Feb. 9 and from 10-11 a.m. at the North County Library in Huntersville Feb. 10.
Computer science and coding equals amazing opportunities at the University Area Computer Science Immersion School. See how your student can benefit.
