Coding Classes Made Just For Kids

Our middle school coding program provides a full curriculum of online coding classes for kids in grades 6-8. We teach a structured and progressive curriculum that builds on skills with every course and let’s kids explore the front and back end. We dive right into text-based languages like Python and expand on this knowledge to finally launch an app in the App Store.

How Our Middle 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.

  • New students start in the Intro to Programming with Python course
  • Placement testing is available for students with previous coding experience
  • Every course has 12 lessons

Coding Curriculum for Middle School

Coding for middle school kids starts with diving right into Python. These classes focus on teaching kids the coding fundamentals and how to write real coding languages like HTML/CSS, JavaScript, and Python. They’ll get comfortable with both front and back end programming including user interfaces, databases, APIs, and cross platform development. By the end of the middle school coding program, students will be able to code a full mobile application and launch it in the App Store.

Wizard Level I

Wizard Level I

These are fun and challenging classes where students learn foundational programming skills and write their first applications on the front and back end.

Questions? We Are Here to Help.

Easy answers to some common questions.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have an 8th grader, which program should I enroll?

Most middle school students should start with Intro to Programming with Python. If you’re in 8th grade, you can enroll in the high school program if you feel comfortable learning at a slightly faster pace.

What if my child already has some experience in Python?

If your child has good prior coding experience in Python, then take a placement exam to skip to the next course.

We highly recommend that you review the full course curriculum and feel confident about knowing that material before taking the placement exam. 

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.

What course should I start with in middle school?

The first course is Intro to Programming with Python. 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.
