Humble Beginnings in Dekalb County, Georgia
Officially founded in 2016, we began as an in school coding and graphic design program at Stone Mountain Middle School.
At that time, our goal was to provide real life problems for youth to solve and to have Evolutionary Teachers with professional experience to guide them through the problem solving process.
Currently, we service the metro Atlanta area by providing educational outlets and resources in technology: coding, graphic design, business acumen, and video editing; and art: dance and fitness to schools, community centers, and government agencies.
