"..THE INSTRUCTORS WERE WONDERFUL..."

My son loved the coding class! He always talked about what he created each week and what enhancements he wanted to add to his game at the next class. The instructors were wonderful and also offered me advice on other projects he could try at home. Thank you for offering this class as it was a wonderful opportunity for my son to be challenged and learn something that he would not have otherwise been exposed to.

WE SPEAK YOUR <CODING> LANGUAGE

We don't know what the hot technology will be in 2030... but we do know that students who learn multiple languages have the skills and confidence to learn others in the future!

"...REALLY GOT ME HOOKED ON COMPUTER PROGRAMMING."

As a middle school student, I thought that this program was a super cool way to learn the basics of coding. I would recommend this place to any kids who want to learn how to code! Power Up Tech Academy gave me a brief yet thorough exposure to coding during the summer, which really got me hooked on computer programming. Their small teacher to student ratio (4:1) allows each student to receive individual attention.
