Coding Classes Made Just For Kids
How Our Elementary School Coding Program Works
The structure of our online coding classes for kids and the 24/7 support engages students to learn, have fun, and develop skills over time while parents stay informed of their progress.
3 payments of $149.
Tuition is spread out in 3 payments, $149 per 4 class sessions.
There is no contract. You may cancel anytime with a 30-day notice and there are no cancellation fees.
CWHQ has a 93% student success rate, compared to 5% for paid, self-paced online video courses and tutorials. That’s an 18x better graduation rate.

Questions? We Are Here to Help.
Easy answers to some common questions.
What technology do we need?
You need a computer with a microphone and a speaker, a browser like Chrome, Firefox, Safari or IE and a good internet connection.
See full details on What Technology is Needed for Class.
What if my child misses a class?
It's easy to catch up. All class sessions are recorded. Recordings along with class slides are made available to the student shortly after the class is over. Students can review the recorded session and slides before the next class. You also have a full suite of beyond-the-classroom benefits, everything your child needs to be successful (even if they miss a class). See full benefits.
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 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.
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.
Is there a sibling discount?
Yes, we have a significant discount for siblings. Siblings receive a $50 discount per payment. Regular students pay 3 payments of $149 per course. Siblings pay 3 payments of only $99 per course. For full details of the sibling discount and how to get it, please see our sibling discounts page.
I have a 5th grader, which program should I enroll?
Most elementary school students should start with the Animation and Games with Scratch. If you’re in 5th grade, you may choose the middle school program if you are confident about text-based programming and your typing speed is 25 wpm with 90% accuracy. After you complete the online enrollment, take a typing test then email a screenshot of your results to firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed in the middle school program.
My child already knows Scratch. What do I do?
My child has no coding experience. Is it ok?
Yes! Our classes are designed so that no prior experience is necessary.
Classes are beginner-friendly. Simply start with the first class in the program for your child's school grade.
What if my student needs help between classes?
You will have access to a full suite of beyond-the-classroom benefits that includes everything your child needs to be successful. We're here to support their learning when they need us. See full benefits.
