Questions? We Are Here to Help.
Answers to frequently asked questions.
What if my child misses a class?
It's easy to catch up. All class sessions are recorded. Recordings along with class slides are made available to the student shortly after the class is over. Students can review the recorded session and slides before the next class. You also have a full suite of beyond-the-classroom benefits, everything your child needs to be successful (even if they miss a class). See full benefits.
What happens after enrollment?
We will confirm your enrollment, class time and start date through email. After that, we will send a welcome email with all class information.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
Yes! All classes have a 100% money-back guarantee. You may cancel anytime within the first 4 sessions, before the fifth session starts. The guarantee does not apply to 1-week camps.
1-week summer camps and winter camps have a cancellation refund guarantee. You may request a full refund at least 7 days before the first scheduled day of camp.
See full guarantee details.
What technology do we need for class?
Students will be using our browser-based code editor to write real code. They don’t need to download or install special software.
You will need the following:
1) A computer with a keyboard, microphone, and speaker – almost all laptops bought within the last five years ago should have these. Chromebooks and iPads are not compatible with our platform.
2) A web browser installed, like Chrome (recommended) or Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer.; and
3) A reliable internet connection. Also, a headset is great so students can keep their hands free, but it isn’t required.
See full details on What Technology is Needed for Class.
Can students use tablets?
Unfortunately no. Because they will be writing typed-code and seeing their work in real-time, they need a computer or laptop with a separate keyboard.
