Why iD Tech

Why iD Tech?

Guaranteed small class sizes
With just 5-10 students per instructor (maximum 10), beginner to advanced students enjoy personalized learning at their pace.

The best industry-standard tech tools
Every year, we invest in the latest and greatest software, hardware, and emerging technologies. Your student can innovate like a pro with tools from Adobe, Apple, Microsoft, Nvidia, Roblox, Unity, and much more.

Convenience for busy, modern families
We offer fast check-in and convenient 30-minute drop-off “windows” so you don’t have to stress about showing up late in the morning or evening. No extra charge!

Official iD Tech Diploma, course transcripts, a cool T-shirt, and more
Your student will leave with their official iD Tech diploma and course transcripts, a custom iD Tech tee (always a favorite to wear to school), their final project (typically on a USB drive), new friends, incredible memories, and skills that’ll last long after summer.

Optional college prep add-ons include:

  • Year-round, Online Private Lessons from iD Tech instructors
  • Continuing Education Units issued by Villanova University
  • College advising sessions by Synocate-certified iD Tech instructors

Pricing and additional information for these add-ons is available during checkout.

Millions of unfilled STEM jobs
In a world with millions of open STEM jobs, employers need your student! Supply and demand are out of balance and there are simply not enough people with the necessary skills. Help bring the galaxy back into alignment!

Creativity to solve real-world problems
Artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, software development, mechanical engineering, UX, design, film, social media...these are the fields that can help solve issues like global warming and water shortages, create autonomous cars, colonize Mars, you name it.

Most schools can’t keep up
We update our curriculum every year and train our instructors in person to teach the most cutting edge courses. Game development with Roblox and Minecraft? Check. Artificial intelligence? Check. Our staff lives and breathes ed tech. The school year is busy. Summer is the perfect opportunity to perfect your tech skills, or gain a completely new skill.

Oh, and the pay? Cha-ching.
The best-paying, most creative careers are in tech. (Yeah, we might be a bit biased, but it’s true). Engineers often make well over $100,000 annually right out of college.

Over 20 years of unparallelled experience
No other tech camp has the experience we do. Nobody. Our educators have meticulously crafted our pedagogy, developing cutting-edge tech programs and forward-thinking curriculum. The iD Tech Pathway, our long-term skill development system, guides students toward internships, college, and dream careers. iD Tech is the #1 tech camp on the planet. 

400,000 students empowered. And counting.
Our family company founded the nation’s first tech camp in 1999. Over 400,000 alumni later, more families place their trust in us than any other summer STEM program in the world.

Our recent alumni survey revealed that:

  • 97% of iD Tech students go on to attend a 4-year college
  • 9 out of 10 go on to study STEM in college
  • 9 out of 10 feel that iD Tech shaped their long-term pathway

It's also common for our alumni to launch startups, found nonprofits, and land dream jobs at companies like Facebook and Google. View success stories.
