Transforming Fayette County, WV through youth & family engagement


Empowering a generation

Coda Mountain Academy is a non profit organization dedicated to the equipping and developing of young students and their families through unique and outstanding educational opportunities. In 2018 Coda provided over 500 youth and their families with summer camps and after-school programs. These programs not only train students in their particular craft but promote invaluable life skills such as team building, integrity, positive self-image, and outstanding character. Offerings include music, Lego robotics, art, cooking, outdoor recreation, and more.

Natural highs

Nestled deep in Appalachian country, Coda’s home is right in the middle of the dazzling New River Gorge in Fayetteville, West Virginia. But within our wild and wonderful state lies an issue impacting people from every income and cultural background — drug and alcohol addiction. Our youth are in unprecedented crisis. The most effective drug prevention strategy is to give our youth a natural and safe place to belong, someone to believe in them, and engagement in meaningful and exciting activities. These things bring natural highs!



Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, all in-person programs will be cancelled or virtual for the remainder of the Fall 2020 Semester. We look forward to seeing you soon!


Students from FPK8, by invitation-only, have been selected to participate in this program where core concepts will be taught through Arts Integration.  Time machine adventures will highlight the heritage and culture origins of the United States of America.


Coda Community offers evening classes in Lego robotics, music and art for young people and their parents each Thursday night.  The classes are reasonably priced with parents able to take the classes with their children if they wish for half price. A free community dinner for the family is available thirty minutes before classes start. Due to COVID-19 Coda Community classes will resume in the Spring of 2021. 

Coda Community: Date TBD


Note: This program has been postponed until further notice.  Regrettably there will be no festival in 2020. Aspiring young musicians ages 12-23 embark on one of the most unforgettable musical excursions of their lives at Coda Mountain Academy’s Summer Music Festival. Over the course of two weeks, students learn the art of true music-making by exploring  a diverse set of musical genres, tackling challenging exercises and disciplines, and further honing their instrumental skills. Led by an outstanding faculty holding degrees from conservatories around the country, students receive top professional instruction both in private lessons and in group ensemble collaboration.


Read in a hammock! Build robots! Make music! Explore permaculture and gardening! Jump start math and language arts for school! Coda's newest program is devoted to nurturing good character, spiritual growth, and unconditional love through a Christian worldview using gardening, technology, music, art and inspiring stories.


Coda is pleased to offer daytime and evening classes for adults called Family Living Workshops. This is a fantastic way to get some YOU time, make new friends, and learn new skills! These 5 – 8 week workshops are FREE! Currently, Coda is offering "Cooking with Kathie" and "Acrylic Tole Painting and Collage." Applications coming soon!


Coda Kidz Music, Art, and Drama Camp is now offering two day camps to serve a broader range of ages! Activities will include rhythm instruments, choir, voice, art, eurythmics, theory, and drama classes in addition to lessons on either guitar, ukulele, violin, viola, or cello.

Coda Inspire is provided through collaboration with Fayette County Schools and Coda Mountain Academy.
