Times: Sun 8am, Tues 7:30pm, Thurs 7pm, Sat 4pm EST 

Scratch

In this course, students will be introduced to coding concepts in Scratch such as variables, motion, operators, and more. This class is perfect for students with little programming knowledge, as it teaches basic material necessary for the Java I and Python I classes. At the end of the course, students will apply their new knowledge through two final projects.

Times: Sun 9am, Tues 6pm, Fri 7pm EST

SAT Math Prep

In this course, students will learn tips and tricks to succeed on the math portion of the SAT. Students will begin by learning basic topics such as polynomials and word problems, and then they will transition to tougher material relating to trigonometry and statistical probability. Students performance will be assessed through graded assignments and tests.

Times: Sun 4pm, Mon 6pm, Wed 5pm, Fri 6pm, Sat 3pm EST
