Our Curriculum

At Code Central, our philosophy stems from two core elements: Create an environment that provides hands-on learning, and offer a curriculum that engages student interest, curiosity, and imagination.

What will students learn at Code Central?

Students will learn many different technologies as they are introduced to various facets of Computer Science through our project-based curriculum. In addition to creating projects, they also complete challenges to facilitate their learning and understanding of concepts. Areas of instruction found throughout the curriculum include:


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.

Graphic Design
The visual aspect of Computer Science is more than just coding. Students learn how to effectively communicate through images, using graphic design to create with digital tools.

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.

Robotics
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.

Computer Hardware
Understanding the inner workings of your computer is vital to understanding what to do when things break down. Students learn what goes into building a computer, and how the different components work together.

Networking & Cyber Security
Now more than ever, Cyber Security is an essential part of internet use. Students are introduced to basic concepts involved with Networks, and what is needed to protect information online.

OUR STRATEGY

How we approach learning

At Code Central, our philosophy stems from two core elements: Create an environment that provides hands-on learning, and offer a curriculum that engages student interest, curiosity, and imagination. We understand that kids learn and grow in different ways and one size does not always fit all.

Working closely with our experienced instructors, students are assigned to a learning path based on age and skill level. These tracks provide learning opportunities in programs most suitable to them as they ‘level up’ and build on their base foundation to more advanced levels.

Our Quality

Built According to Current K-12 Computer Science Learning Standards

Members of the Code Central Curriculum team were among the writers of the Nevada K-12 Academic Standards for Computer Science and Integrated Technology. These standards shape the content of what your students learn in school. Our Curriculum has been written with these standards in mind to ensure a quality level of learning aligned with state standards. So whether your child wishes to learn to code, or needs help with passing their school classes, our program will help your child succeed academically.

STUDENT LEARNING PLATFORM

Custom-Built Learning Management System

Our in-house designed learning platform tracks student progress and facilitates instruction as students complete projects and coursework in a gamified environment designed to increase student engagement. This easy to use system increases student motivation as they “level-up” by completing projects and challenges .
