The Code Advantage

We don’t just teach coding and robotics. We create learning environments for kids to develop logical thinking, creative exploration, and critical reasoning skills – while having fun. Kids can join one of our award winning after-school computer programming courses or an online coding class with a live instructor and learn online with other students.

Rock Star Instructors

Rock Star Instructors

Our instructors come equipped with strong technical backgrounds AND prior work experience with kids. We hand-pick only the best and train them to be masters in classroom management whether it be in an after school program or one of our online coding classes for kids.

Kid-Tested Curriculum

Kid-Tested Curriculum

We’ve created our own lessons to focus on project-based curriculum so students aren’t only engaged with the content, but more importantly, learn the practical application of what they’re being taught. We structure each lesson plan for students to learn specific coding concepts, create their own projects, and master skills with differentiated learning to address individual student needs.

Supportive & Fun Environment

Supportive & Fun Environment

CodeAdvantage classes deliver fun, educational experiences in interactive environments made for learning, creating, and mastering technology skills. It’s important to us that every CodeAdvantage student feels supported, which is why we offer an industry-best 7:1 student to teacher ratio. Our instructors don’t just teach, they build relationships, allowing kids to feel comfortable and confident as they learn and develop their coding knowledge. Rest assured that your child will get all the attention they needed whether taking one of our in-person after school classes or an online coding course.

Scratch was a fun class because I like playing video games and now. I can create my own! It is like a dream come true!

— Alia, age 9, NJ

I always wanted my son to get interested in coding but with all the other activities, he didn’t take much interest. We signed him up with CodeAdvantage since some friends recommended them. To our surprise, he LOVED his Python class! The teacher made it really fun and he is always excited to share what he created in class.
