How it works


Credentials + Creativity

Learn in a properly structured environment that tracks the development of 418+ skills and five core competency areas in computer science. Be playful while you do serious work: choose from hundreds of themes that stimulate your creativity. Your learning leads to Writer, Author, Intern, and Jr. Developer certificates. 

Start Learning

Code, Build, Create, Repeat

Learning happens in a fully featured programming language: JavaScript or Python. You begin with small projects, learn how to modify them, and move on to larger ones. You’ll learn the inquiry, research, and collaboration skills needed for industry, and then transition to a full-stack development environment.

Power Learning

Proper Reporting

Completing projects means practicing and developing skills and competencies. Progress made across 418+ skills and 5 core computer science competencies (that we call Superpowers), is reported in your “Student Dashboard” and your “Account/Parent Dashboard”.
