Computer science for homeschoolers

Today is the day to prepare your student for a rapidly changing world! Computer science for homeschooled kids is important because it provides students the opportunity to experience the very same tools used by professionals, that will be built on and used during their careers.

With 25 topics to choose from including the best beginner coding, Scratch, to more advanced real-life programming languages like Python, creative game coding such as Roblox, Minecraft, and even artificial intelligence and cloud computing, you can unlock your child’s imagination and equip them with lifelong skills when you take advantage of Create & Learn’s unique curriculum.

Students from grades K to 12 will find exactly the right path for their education with our comprehensive computer science curriculum for kids, used by over 60,000 students worldwide, and awarded the Most Loved 2021 award by Hulafrog parents.

Homeschool computer technology curriculum

As Apple’s Tim Cook said, "We think coding should be required in every school because it's as important as any kind of second language. This is a language that you can use to express yourself to 7 billion people in the world." Technological literacy is a fundamental skill set that fosters creativity, problem solving, and all sorts of other lifelong skills. Our curriculum equips students in many unique ways:

  • Understand the broader world: Our life goals are often limited by what we know about the world. We show students how studying computer science can lead to making movies, training top athletes, investing in stocks, building smart homes, creating robots, saving wild animals, and much more.
  • Retain your learning: We engage kids' curiosity with successful pattern building. Our unique learning method ensures students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills they'll use even beyond the classroom.
  • Enjoy a comprehensive path: Starting with MIT Scratch, our curriculum covers wide-ranging topics including computer science fundamentals, core programming languages such as Python, Javascript, and Java, as well as state of art technologies such as Firebase, Keras (Artificial Intelligence), and Android - the same tools top engineers use. Classes build on top of previous subjects to reinforce learning, while also expanding to new areas of learning.

You can get started today with the best homeschool computer science curriculum for your child. Select a path that matches their grade and interests, and prepares them for their future career.

Homeschool coding classes

With homeschool coding classes online, you're no longer limited by your geographical location. Now, your child can learn from the world's best computer science instructors in the comfort of your home. Furthermore, with private online coding classes your child can learn one-on-one with an expert, at their own pace.

Not sure where to get started? One of our most popular homeschool coding classes is Scratch Ninja. Developed by MIT, Scratch coding is a great way to introduce kids to computer programming. Children will build fun games, animations, and stories during class to keep the learning interesting and interactive.

Free homeschool computer curriculum

Learn coding and have fun with our free homeschool computer curriculum! We offer 7 free coding classes that introduce students to new STEM concepts. Sign your child up for a few to see what they enjoy most, and then complete their curriculum with our series of classes in that subject. In our small group classes (5 students max), your child will be able to participate in our live video experience, sharing what they're working on with the instructor, and asking questions as they go.
