    My child missed a class. Can I schedule a make-up session?

    My child loves Minecraft. How do I select between Minecraft Club and Modding in Minecraft?

    Depending on the age of your child, we offer 2 options for Minecraft related classes.

    Minecraft Club is a wonderful way to channel a child’s growing interest (sometimes obsession) with Minecraft into a productive and creative opportunity. We allow children to learn the ins and outs of Minecraft and have project based lessons so they can bring their imagination to life.

    Our Modding in Minecraft is designed specifically for 4th graders to 8th graders. This 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 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!
