Kids Start to Code With ScratchScratch, a block-based coding language, was designed specifically to teach kids how to code. That’s why our program for elementary kids ages 8-10 starts with this easy drag and drop platform. Elementary students learn key coding fundamentals while creating fun games that encourage them to keep learning.
All students in the core track start in Animation and Games With Scratch at Wizard Level I. If you have previous coding experience, take the Placement test. Returning students can continue with the class where they left off.

A Structured Coding Curriculum That’s Focused On Your Child’s Success
Each course in the elementary school core track builds on what students learned in previous courses so they truly master what they learn.
Wizard Level I
Wizard Level II
Wizard Level III
When elementary students progress to Wizard Level III, they’ll learn advanced web development skills. They will have the coding skills to build websites that are browser and user friendly, then advance to back end web development in the middle school coding classes.

See full details on What Technology is Needed for Class.
What course should I start with in elementary school?
The first course is Animation and Games with Scratch in the core track. Upon successful completion of the first course, students progress through our structured and progressive curriculum in the order that they are listed on the curriculum page. See the placement testing page if your student has significant coding experience and would like to start at a higher level in the core track.
I have a 10 year old, which program should I enroll?
Most 8-10 year old students should start with the Animation and Games with Scratch in the core track. If you’re 10, you may choose the middle school core track if you are confident about text-based programming and your typing speed is 25 wpm with 90% accuracy. After you complete the online enrollment, take a typing test then email a screenshot of your results to [email protected] to be placed in the middle school core track.
My child already knows Scratch. What do I do?
If your child has good prior coding experience in Scratch, then take a placement exam to skip to the next course in the core track.
We highly recommend that you review the full course curriculum and feel confident about knowing that material before taking the placement exam.
