My child missed a class. Can I schedule a make-up session?
Make-up classes are scheduled when they are cancelled due to a school closing. If your child misses a class on a particular day, you can go on to the Parent Student Portal to locate the concept summary from the day’s lesson. There are additional activities there for them to explore.
My child loves Minecraft. Why can’t they take the class before 4th grade?
Our Modding in Minecraft course teaches our students to use Java to change the underlying source code to create new objects of their own which get uploaded into the game. Java is a complex coding language which requires competent keyboarding skills and a clear understanding of various punctuation marks and symbols. Precise typing is required for programs to run.
My child loved their instructors! Can we have them again for the next class?
While we would love to be able to have an instructor progress through the courses with their class, their work availability determines which class they teach from semester to semester. All of our instructors are fun, interactive, and valuable members of the CodeAdvantage team. Your child will enjoy getting to know, learning from, and having fun with their new teacher. It’s the CodeAdvantage way!
Do you host birthday parties?
