Questions? We are here to help.
Answers to some common questions.
Can I enroll in a class that has already started?
Yes, we allow late enrollments within the first 2 sessions of a class (as long as we still have room in the class). If you enroll after the first session, watch the video and review the slides from that session. You also have access to a full suite of beyond-the-classroom benefits to catch up and complete homework.
What if my child has coding experience?
The CodeWizardsHQ program is a multi-year sequentially structured curriculum that is beginner-friendly and requires no prior coding experience. If students have coding experience (other than Scratch, Code.Org, Minecraft, etc), they might be able to join an intermediate course based on demonstrated skill level. See the Placement Testing page for more details.
What course should I start with in elementary school?
The first course is Animation and Games with Scratch. Upon successful completion of the first course, students progress through our structured and progressive curriculum in the order that they are listed on the curriculum page. See the placement testing page if your student has significant coding experience and would like to start at a higher level in the program.
Do courses have prerequisites?
The Introduction to Programming with Python course does not require any prior coding knowledge. The course is meant to build a strong foundation of coding knowledge for the rest of our courses. We ask that students take courses in the order that they are listed on our Curriculum page.
Does CodeWizardsHQ offer scholarships?
We offer merit, diversity and needs-based scholarships. Check out our scholarship page to check your eligibility and apply.
How much does a course cost?
All courses meet for 12 class sessions with an associated cost of 3 payments of $149 per course, unless specified otherwise. The price includes a full suite of beyond-the-classroom benefits that your child needs to be successful. For a full list of what's included, please see pricing details page.
Do you have a trial version?
We offer a money-back guarantee if you choose to withdraw from classes within your first four class sessions. So while we do not have a “trial” class, we do have a built-in trial period. The best way to experience our program is to just dive in and evaluate the experience before the 4th class session.
How does your money-back guarantee work?
CodeWizardsHQ will do everything possible to make our classes challenging, fun, and productive for your student. If you don’t want your student to continue, please notify us of your withdrawal within the first four class sessions in our program and you will receive a full refund.
What is the best time to enroll?
We are a year-round program. We start new classes every month. Don’t wait to get started. Enrollment is open now. As soon as you enroll, you will receive a welcome email and orientation package for you and your child.
Can my child and their friends be in the same class?
We are happy to accommodate friend requests when possible, as long as students are on the same curriculum and give a minimum 1 week notice in advance of class start date. We will not be able to rearrange class assignments once classes are filled.
When enrolling siblings or using a referrer name during enrollment it is not assumed that they want to be in the same class. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like students grouped in the same class.
