CODING

Distance / Virtual Learning Program

Coding is the language of the future. We offer various coding languages for children ages 6 and above (some of our students are adults also!).

 

Our curriculum is designed to meet individual interests and strengths.

Our lesson plans are intended to develop coding skills by providing our students with skill-appropriate challenges with increasing complexity.

 

Our virtual coding lessons are 1-on-1 so that each child gets the attention that they deserve.

Individual sessions & personalized curriculum is our key to developing young talent.
