Our Approach

Based in the DC metro area, Capital Coding Academy offers small group lessons for elementary and middle school students to learn to code. Whether your budding computer scientist is brand new to coding, looking to transition from Scratch to Python, or even enhance Python skills they've already developed, we are here to help. Our goal is not only for students to learn, but for them to have fun. Sessions are fully interactive and focused on game development. We find this approach keeps students engaged and wanting to learn more so they can develop games of increasing complexity that are as much fun to play as they are to code. We accept students of all skill levels, even those for whom using a computer is a new experience.

Lessons are offered in approximately 50 minute intervals and delivered using Zoom. Each session is fully interactive with a goal of being both fun and educational.
