We Make Coding Fun For Kids Ages 7-18

Purpose

Foster and solidify a passion for technological innovation among kids

Niche

Providing advanced, flexible and engaging technology education for kids
Code Galaxy grew from a small physical center in Austin, TX, to multiple satellite locations throughout the regions, offering hybrid classes both on and off-line, to finally becoming 100% online-based. Our students learn basic to advanced computer and programming skills, giving them 21st-century tools for creative expression!

Our world-class teachers will make computer science accessible to students, and our learning model enables advanced students to learn at their own pace. Kids can complete the exercises and practices required to understand the concepts and skills quickly and thrive using new knowledge and creativity in creating their own programs.

Currently, there is a lack of quality technology and coding education in schools. As a result of such few qualified teachers, the current system does not give students a thorough understanding of computer science and programming.
We're here to fix that.
