  • How it Works
    1. Find the perfect class

    Explore our online class options based on your child’s grade and/or speak to our Principal to learn more.

    2. Register

    Choose from a wide selection of available days and times to find a class that’s convenient for you. All classes run on 8-week cycles that meet one day per week. If you want to create your own class – we can customize for your group or 1:1 (pricing varies).

    3. Getting Started

    Once you register, we send you a confirmation and access to our portal. It gives you everything you need in 1 place - I install instructions, class entry links, additional enrichment challenges, and badges once a level is completed! If you need tech help, you can also contact our IT team through the portal and we’ll help you check your technical specs, access to the virtual classroom, go over how everything works, and give you an opportunity to ask any questions.

    4. Learn

    As part of a live classroom setting, kids will be part of a community of real students with real instructors. Optional practice materials and challenges will be provided weekly so students can keep learning even when class isn’t in session. Technical support is available, and just like in school, our principal is available to assist students with any other issues or concerns.

  • Online coding classes

    CodeAdvantage learned how to create high quality, educational and fun experiences for kids of all ages working with thousands of students in top private and public schools in the NYC metro area - one of the largest and most demanding schools districts in the country.

    Our online coding classes offer the same high-quality, kid-tested, parent-approved programs with LIVE instructors working with all the kids in a virtual classroom setting!

    With our progression (Level 1-3) of coding classes, kids learn and apply coding skills across a variety of computer programming languages and build upon what they learned to achieve mastery of coding fundamentals.

  • Online Coding Classes for Kids

    Our classes include everything your child needs to go from beginner to advanced levels so they can master the coding fundamentals of software/web development and game design.
    As students advance to the next levels, they learn more advanced coding concepts and move to more complex projects.

    Note: Due to school closings, we want to do our best to accommodate families and children adjusting to new schedules. Therefore, we have lowered our pricing for the Create Your Own class/camp option We hope this allows kids to learn to code in a virtual class with their friends (and still be convenient for parents!)

  • What Parents are Saying about our Online Coding Courses

    I wanted to get my son involved with coding but could never find a location that fit with our busy schedule. CodeAdvantage’s online computer programming class helped my son learn to code and feel like he was in a class of peers the whole time. All from the convenience of our home!

    My daughter loves the class – she can’t wait to tackle the extra enrichment and feels she has really accomplished so much in each class. The classes are well structured and fun!

    We weren’t sure what to expect from an online coding class but it was beyond our expectations – amazing instructors that keep the kids engaged and having fun. Our 10 year old daughter loved Scratch and is excited to do Python next!

    Finally, an after school enrichment activity that doesn’t require me to do drop off and pick up! The kids get home from school and log into their class – an hour later they can’t wait to tell me what they created and are ready to play and eat dinner!

    We can help you Create Your Own Class or Camp that fits your schedule.

    Who are the teachers?

    Our instructors have backgrounds in computer science, engineering, and/or math as well as experience working with kids. With a strong understanding of how to teach coding to young kids, your child gets a fun, educational class experience. All our instructors undergo background checks.

    Can we do a trial class?

    We understand you may want to try a class before registering for the full session or camp. We have created a sampling of trial classes.

    Is this self-guided?

    No, our virtual classroom offers a convenient way for your child to participate in a classroom environment with a real, live instructor. We offer the same great instruction that is available in our after school classes and private classes.

    Is there homework?

    We understand that some students will be excited to apply what they are learning to even more challenges. We provide access to our Advantage portal which contains a high level review of the lesson and additional challenges and exercises that can be done between classes. If a student has questions or wants to discuss the exercises, they can log on 5 min prior to the class start time.

    Can missed classes be made up?

    We only offer make up classes for Create Your Own Classes and 1:1 Tutoring Classes. If you think you will need greater flexibility, let us know so we can help you select the right class type for your schedule.

    What if my child can’t log on or has technical difficulties?

    If you experience any technical difficulties during a class, we will do our best to resolve them without taking away from the full classroom experience. If it is more serious, we will schedule a time to help you resolve it. We suggest everyone log on 5 minutes prior to the class start time so that any unexpected issues can be resolved prior to class.

    Are the additional enrichment exercises checked or graded?

    We don’t require students to complete the enrichment exercises like it’s homework, so we don’t grade it like homework either. However, if students would like to review their work, they’re able to discuss with the instructor 5 minutes prior to each class.

    Do you offer Sibling Discounts?

    We love it when families learn to code! We give you 10% off an 8 week session or camp for each sibling you sign up. The sibling does not need to be enrolled in the same class but should be enrolled for the same timeframe. Contact Us to get a sibling discount.
