Homeschool

Fuel Your Child's Passions

Does your child love playing games or computers? Are they curious about how computers work? Are looking to supplement your  child's homeschool curriculum with a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) program? Take a look at our homeschool classes. Our program is based on National Computer Science Teachers Association standards for teaching CS in K-12 classes and we fully immerse our students in the world of coding and computers and gadgets. 

Why CodeForce?

All STE{A}M schools were not created equal. We provide STE{A}M activities through the lens of technology. However, we feel like technology is only half of the experience and have introduced our STEAM+ approach to learning. In addition to coding awesome games, digital devices, computers, and robots we also teach digital safety, privacy and good digital citizenship. We teach presentation skills and work on a students ability to give and receive constructive criticism. We reinforce the idea that it's okay to make mistakes and fail in order to learn and improve. All in a safe environment with like-minded kids. 

Lets go beyond coding. 

Digital Safety

We work in Digital Safety and Online Privacy into every class/camp. Teaching our kids to be safe on the web is one of our fundamental principles. 

Cyber Bullying

Being a bully or being bullied online are two topics we must address in each class/camp. This goes hand in hand with our Digital Safety initiatives. 

Presentation Skills

Presentation skills and recieving and giving feedback and constructive criticism are valuable skills that will benefit kids of all ages.

What is a Sprint?
In Software Development, a sprint is a set period of time that work has to be completed before it is ready for review. Our sprints are the same idea. They are 5-6 week periods where we teach your kids AWESOME Coding and STE{A}M skills.
