Mississippi Coding Academies Expands Reach to the Delta with New Clarksdale Campus
The Mississippi Coding Academies Board of Directors is excited to announce the opening of enrollment for MCA’s new Delta location. The Clarksdale campus is scheduled to begin operations in January 2024 at the PeopleShores Delivery Center at 1540 Desoto Ave. in Clarksdale, Miss.
Mississippi Coding Academies offer tuition-free courses across the state. The program was founded in 2017 as a joint project between Innovate Mississippi and the Mississippi Development Authority, a state agency tasked with recruiting new businesses to Mississippi and promoting economic growth. It is now a standalone 501c3 non-profit organization.
Committed to delivering accessible and high-quality coding education, MCA Delta and PeopleShores hope to actively engage with local businesses, organizations, and leaders to create a supportive ecosystem for tech education and employment opportunities.
“The program at MCA Delta is a game-changer. It’s not just about learning to code; it’s about gaining the confidence and skills to thrive in the tech industry,” said PeopleShore’s Joey Bailey. “I am excited about the opportunities ahead.”
“We believe in the power of education to transform lives. MCA Delta is not just about teaching code; it’s about unlocking the immense potential within our community and fostering a new generation of tech professionals,” said MCA Delta Instructor Matthew Harris.
MCA is dedicated to narrowing the tech education gap in Mississippi. The program will now operate in four training locations: Jackson, Biloxi, Clarksdale and Columbus.
