Coding Classes Made Just For Kids
Our Middle School Program, for Grades 6-8, is made to help kids learn coding fundamentals and start writing real code.
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.
User Interface Development
Application Programming Interfaces
Python Web Framework
Building Web Applications
Mobile App Development
Imagine putting a headset over your eyes and getting teleported to a virtual world. What if you built that world yourself? How exciting and entertaining would that be, right? In this course, we use the latest tools from Mozilla and Google to launch a VR game by the end of the course.
Students learn the most popular systems for adding data and improving user experience to their applications.
- User Interface Development
- Mastering Databases
- Application Programming Interfaces
- Capstone II: Online Multiplayer Gaming
Games are more fun with friends. Until now we have been building single-player games, in this course, we use server-side tools to create a multiplayer game that uses a database to save scores and keep players in sync.
At this stage, students are ready to take on mobile development and programming in the real-world using standard practices.
- Python Web Framework
- Building Web Applications
- Mobile App Development
- Capstone III: Cross-Platform App
Create the next viral mobile app. In this course, we spend 12 weeks creating a mobile app from scratch that works in both android and iOS.
All students start in Intro to Programming at Wizard Level I. If you have previous coding experience, take the Advanced Placement test. Returning students can continue with the class where they left off.
- Intro to Programmingon Sundays (12 weeks, 1 class per week)
- Intro to Programmingon Mondays (12 weeks, 1 class per week)
- Intro to Programmingon Tuesdays (12 weeks, 1 class per week)
- Intro to Programmingon Wednesdays (12 weeks, 1 class per week)
- Intro to Programmingon Saturdays (12 weeks, 1 class per week)
See our school calendar to check the holiday meeting schedule.
Some students may have already been introduced to the world of coding. We have a placement test to move ahead in our program so they begin at the right level.

Questions? We Are Here to Help.
Easy answers to some common questions.
What course should I start with?
The first course depends on your child’s grade level. See the Elementary (Grades 3-5), Middle (Grades 6-8), and High School (Grades 9-12) Program pages. All students start in the first class of the program at Wizards Level I and, as they graduate each class, move to the next class and Wizard Level. Returning students can continue with the class where they left off. Advanced placement is also available if your child has previous coding experience. Learn more about the full curriculum and enroll to get started.
What technology do we need for class?
To attend class your child will only need: 1) A computer with a keyboard, microphone, and speaker – almost all laptops bought within the last five years ago should have these; 2) A web browser installed, like Chrome (recommended) or Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer; and 3) A reliable internet connection. Bonus, a headset is helpful so students can keep their hands free, but it isn’t required. See our full curriculum.
Is there homework? Grading?
Every class has weekly homework assignments to supplement class time. There are also quizzes, reviews, and exercises to show mastery of the material. We do not assign grades but do recognize our student’s successes. We report the completion of assignments to parents on a weekly basis. See our full curriculum.
What if my child misses a class?
All class sessions are recorded. These, 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 if they are absent. They also have access to help on the community board from other students, direct messaging with teachers, and complimentary office hours for additional support.
How much does a course cost?
All classes meet for 12 sessions with an associated cost of $149 per 4 class sessions unless specified otherwise. At no additional cost, students get 24/7 direct-messaging support from teachers, live office hours, access to our online student community, and weekly progress reports. See our full pricing details.
Can I enroll after a class has started?
Yes! We accept late enrollments for any class until the beginning of the second session. Enroll today.
