High school students can spend the summer learning skills that will earn them big bucks when they graduate.

Louisville company, Interapt, has started a class called Interapt Skills Summer Academy to teach kids how to code.

"There's a deficiency between what students are coming out of school with and what  employers need  and the skillset that we are teaching them is going to help shorten that deficiency," Interapt Summer Coding Academy teacher, Crystal Adkins said.

The students will learn Java and Android coding.

The four-week class started Monday and continues until June 29. It’s open to any high school student in Kentuckiana.

There is a second session on IOS development from July 9 until August 3.
