Java Programming in High School Prepares Kids for College and Career
Java is one of the top coding languages among developers and businesses. For teens, learning Java will help them in AP Computer Science and prepare them for college courses. They’ll be able to use Java in different career fields such as game development, natural language processing, mobile app development, financial services, and much more.
Why Should Teens Learn Java Programming?
Java is a powerful programming language and platform that is both simple and high performance. Learning Java programming gives teens solid future-ready skills.
Java Is Beginner-Friendly for Teens
Teens can learn Java with no prior coding experience. A big benefit is that it’s a “strongly typed” programming language, so students have more structure and errors are easily caught.
Java Is a Popular Language and Skill
Java is one of the top 3 most popular coding languages in 2022 among developers and corporations. It’s used widely in Android development and the Internet of Things.
Teens Can Grow with Learning Java
Java is used by professional programmers so teens can use it in high school, college, and beyond. Learning to code with Java gives them solid skills for college and career.
Online Java Classes for Kids
CodeWizardsHQ delivers the most fun and effective live, online Java programming courses for teens ages 14-18. Students attend weekly live, teacher-led Java coding classes from the convenience of your home.
AP Computer Science Program
Java is taught as a part of our AP Computer Science prep courses. These courses cover the fundamentals of Java, which helps prepare students for the AP Computer Science A course in high school.
Java 1 – Introductory Course
In the introductory course, high school students learn the fundamentals of the Java programming language including the structure of a Java program. They will get familiar with programming concepts like variables, data types, methods, control statements, arrays, and logical operators. The course ends with a 2-lesson final project that incorporates all the material covered in class.
Java 2 – Intermediate Course
In the intermediate course, high school students build on what they learned in Java 1 with object-oriented programming. This includes Java classes and objects, static methods, encapsulation, inheritance, abstraction, interfaces, polymorphism, and more. The course ends with a 2-lesson final project that ties together all the concepts learned throughout each lesson.

Questions? We Are Here to Help.
Easy answers to some common questions.
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.
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.
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.
