I learned that we can do anything, but we cant do everything… at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.

I was so impressed by their obvious preparation for this class and so grateful that John has an opportunity to have such great role models during this series of classes. John was so excited about jumping in to work on his first app yesterday! He had a great time, thank you for making it such a fun and enriching experience. Hes inspired and excited about creating apps! Wow! This is a fantastic program youve put together.

Our programming classes help you learn to create your first mobile app!

Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is love – enjoy it.

This class really taught me a lot, and it might just make me a lot of money from the apps that I will create in the future!

Experience is the teacher of all things.

My most recent app is called MW3 Facts and Guide which is an app that provides information about the Modern Warfare 3 video game. This app has over 110,000 downloads and I am anticipating my 200,000th download in 6 months!

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.

We have been teaching kids since 2012!

What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it – would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have.

The Menlo App Academys mission is to help kids leverage technology, so that they can share their passions with others across the globe. It is appropriate for kids in 6th through 9th grade (ages 10-16), and is designed for kids with little or no prior programming experience. The Menlo App Academy is committed to admitting up to 10% of students on a full scholarship (free class), in order to expose less advantaged kids to the same opportunities. The Menlo App Academy was started by kids for kids, and is supervised by adults. Inquiries should be sent to: .

The only source of knowledge is experience.

Elegance is not the abundance of simplicity. It is the absence of complexity.

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

We teach kids between the ages of 10 and 16 about technology and how to program!

We teach kids between the ages of 10 and 16 about technology and programming. No experience necessary!

We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.

We have many satisfied students and parents!

Max and I started coding our first iPhone app in November of 2011. It was amazing how easy it is to use Apples products and be creative. One of my apps is on Celiac Disease. As a young child, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease which means that I am gluten intolerant. I wanted to share what I had learned over the years about Celiac and my Celiapp allowed me to do this. Coding can be really fun and the App Store is a huge marketplace. Max and I are excited about sharing our knowledge and experience!

This class was really great! The teachers and helpers always had an answer for our problems. They taught us all about what each part of code meant. Definitely coming back next year! – August, 2012

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Perfection is Achieved Not When There Is Nothing More to Add, But When There Is Nothing Left to Take Away

They were so well spoken, polished, at ease presenting to a tough audience, including 5th grade boys, and they possess such great communication and presentation skills for their age (or any age for that matter, they were better than most adults Ive heard present!).

Lifes but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I wanted to learn how to create apps for the iPhone and iPad so I asked my dad to help me learn to program. My friend Matt Dillabough wanted to learn also so we started a class and included our brothers and their friend. We started off making a quiz app. By starting off with simple apps, we learned the basics of Xcode, Objective-C, and much more about programming.

Max Colbert and Matt Dillabough founded the Menlo App Academy back in 2012. We were 13 years old then. Now we are 16 and in high school. We enjoy teaching kids about technology!

Max and Matt, Thanks for the great camp! Karen really enjoyed it. – July, 2012

Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.

If you are interested in starting a Local Chapter of the Menlo App Academy, please send us an email!
