New Programs beginning Fall 2020

One of the most exciting programs to come to Extra Ed this year is Coding, and it has been wildly popular with our students. Since writing code for applications has become one of the most important skills to acquire today, we encourage all students to keep learning and growing their Coding skills and literacy. Now is the time to become Coding literate.

That’s why Extra Ed is here. We want students to be fully prepared for the future, become coding literate, and experience the Extra fun associated with learning!

Extra Ed runs Level 1 - 5 Coding Programs for Junior Students (Grades 1-3) and Senior Students (Grades 4-8).

  • Grades 1-3 – The coding platform used is Scratch. Students learn the logic of programming while building games and animations. This platform is intuitive, fun and colourful, allowing students to create and fully engage their imaginations by bringing their ideas to life. Students advance to the next Level when they complete the previous Coding Level.
  • Grades 4-8 – Older students use Python, a programming language and technology used by major companies. Python has many functionalities, is highly intuitive, and easy to learn. Students advance to the next Level when they complete the previous Coding Level.

An Extraordinary Education

  • Coding gives you courage to try new things.
  • Coding develops critical, abstract, and logical thinking skills.
  • Coding helps you become a clear communicator.
