Computer Science Curriculum For Schools

Interested in bringing coding to your school?

Why Our Curriculum?

Code Central’s Level-Up Curriculum consists of engaging, educational, and all-encompassing instructional materials and an easy-to-use platform that allows schools to provide the highest quality Computer Science education for students.

Our project-based curriculum was created and developed in-house by members of the Nevada Department of Education K-12 Computer Science Standards writing team, and has been refined over several years of continuous development through practical application and use by thousands of students.

Accredited by the Nevada Department of Education and, our curriculum and Learning Management System provide schools with everything needed to ensure grade-level standards are being met. In addition to aligning with state requirements, we utilize industry standard tools to ensure that students are learning real-world job skills.

Customized Learning Platform and Management System

Code Central’s curriculum is accessed through our online Learning Management System. Student progress, evaluations, and standard alignments can all be found within this fully integrated system. This platform allows teachers to easily implement the learning materials into their classrooms via the teaching style that they most prefer: classroom-style, individualized self-paced, or small group collaboration.

Our gamified student portal allows students to gain points and ‘level-up’ as they complete projects and challenges. Material is divided into 3 main categories:

Game Development
In our Game Development programs, students apply coding concepts to build clones of existing video games, as well as creating games of their own design.

Website Development
Web Development introduces design in coding as students build websites that not only look good, but are also accessible to many different types of users.

Robotics is separated into two primary categories: 1) Electrical Engineering, focusing on coding and the brains of a robot, and 2) Mechanical Engineering, which focuses on building the physical and moving parts of robots.

Additional Areas of Study Available:

  • Python

  • Flowcharting

  • Digital Citizen

  • Cyber Security

  • Data Graphs and Analysis

  • . . . And more!

  • Options for material to be presented three different ways: classroom-style, individualized self-paced, or small group
  • Easy access to challenge answers
  • ‘Practice Arena’ for homework and/or additional concept knowledge

  • ‘Typing Validator’ to track student typing speed and accuracy

Teacher Tools

Tracking Student Progress:

Teachers can separate their classes into groups and track student progress through our teacher dashboard and easy-to-use groups system.

How Do We Align with State Standards?

Our curriculum is separated into easy-to-utilize categories focusing on different aspects of Computer Science. These categories overlap extensively to allow for customization to best fit the content for individual classrooms. Within a semester, teachers can utilize material from our various category offerings to fulfill all state requirements for the 6th-8th grade levels.

We have also created semester-long ‘standard pacing’ guides to ensure that by the end of a semester students will have satisfied all requirements for that grade level. All additional material within our extensive catalog is also available for additional enrichment courses or additional material for students to go beyond the state standards.

Standard Pace
Ensures that all standard requirements will be fulfilled by the end of a semester.

Level-Up Pace
Created for students taking an enrichment class or wishing to explore more of what our curriculum has to offer.
