Students will complete hands-on coding projects in every chapter. Scroll through the images below to see a few examples of student work.
This is a one-semester course, with enough material for approximately 18 weeks of school when progressing with typical, daily work. It can be stretched over a full school year at a more relaxed pace, if desired. The 1-year purchase option gives you a full calendar year to complete the material.
The following prices apply for this one-semester course.
|Monthly Option||1-Year Option|
|Self-Study||$15 / month||$75 / year|
The 1-year window on year-long subscriptions does not start until you redeem your purchased registration codes to create your account. So, you can purchase now and get started when ready.
If you choose a 1-year option, then you can add additional siblings to the same class for $40. Additional siblings can be added by the teacher from within the course after your initial login.
If you choose a monthly subscription, then additional siblings can be added under the same teacher at the same monthly subscription rates.
Monthly or 1-Year Subscription
You can choose an affordable monthly subscription or purchase a 1-year subscription. Students will progress through courses at their own pace, normally finishing this course in one full semester. But some students may complete the material more quickly or slowly.
Monthly subscriptions are auto-billed to your credit card each month. You can maintain the subscription for as long as your student needs to complete the course and cancel the subscription at any time; there is no long-term commitment.
1-year subscriptions let you pay one discounted price up-front for a full calendar year of access. After the first year, if you need more, you can convert your account to a monthly subscription.
If, within the first 30 days, you find your selected course is not a good fit for your student for any reason, we will fully refund your purchase price (1-year subscription or first month subscription) and cancel your account with no obligation.
Self Study - How It Works
Our self-study curriculum allows families to work through the material on their own, backed by our technical support. In a self-study course:
- Students move at their own self-study pace
- Our experts provide free technical support, answer student questions and help correct coding problems
- All quizzes and tests are automatically graded by the system
- Parents will monitor student progress (if desired)
- Parents will assign grades to hands-on projects (if desired)
- Parents will self-certify completion of the course (if needed)
Your self-study course includes a student account to access our online material and a teacher account that lets parents review fully coded activity solutions, access teacher's lesson guides and assign hands-on project grades.
Is your student taking this course to add to a middle or high school transcript? We've done the research and understand how our courses map to specific state standards and titles. Instead of writing our course name on the transcript, you can list the appropriate course standard for your state.
