Online Coding Classes For Kids of Grades 1 and 2
There is an endless amount of DIY coding websites, but often students need help understanding where to begin or what to do when they are stuck. Also, there is a big void in programs in terms of offering and encouraging entrepreneurship skills. After all, we want our students to build software companies, not just work in one of them! Our coding program offers live, online, small group classes for students in grades 1 to 8 that cover a wide variety of coding and entrepreneurship skills. Check out our full curriculum to understand how we are building the next generation technology leaders.

Teachers and students both play an active role in the learning process. The teacher facilitates comprehension of the material while constantly and actively measuring student learning. Students are engaged and involved during the entire class session where the teacher gauges their understanding through questions and discussions, and then the student demonstrates their mastery through independent practice.
Our program is designed to meet individual student needs by maintaining small classes, no more than 4 to a class. While the bulk of each session focuses on a specific concept or skill, time is allotted to address individual skill gaps and lessons are provided as necessary. This is to ensure no skill goes unaddressed as your student advances to the next grade level.
Technology plays a massive role in our program, as we are 100% online. Through integrating traditional teaching methods by using devices, applications, and the internet, students are able to connect with committed teachers and peers from around the country to engage in material and learn.
