Course

Java Fundamentals

For Ages 15 - 17

course_description

Java is a object oriented programming language that is widely used for cross platform applications. This course introduces programming in Native Java using an IDE.

 

Java Fundamentals introduces students to Java in a 16 week course that is designed for students with no or limited experience in coding. Each week a core coding concept is introduced and explained through a series of exercises. Short assignments and exercises outside of class build proficiency. For the last two weeks, students work on a capstone project that pulls together all of the concepts and coding techniques that they now have in their toolbox.

 

Course worksheets are available that introduce the concepts and how they are applied. These worksheets have been developed for those new to coding. They provide clear explanations of important concepts using non-technical language. We think you will appreciate the approach.

 

If you are thinking about learning to code for the first time, then you might find Python easier to pick up. Python’s syntax is designed to be intuitive and its relative simplicity allows newbies to hit the ground running. Conversely, Java has a steeper learning curve.

Membership Information

Do classes for new students start every week?

Courses are student led and self-paced. You simply join a class that is convenient for you and our instructors will pick it up from there. During your first class you will have a instructor who works directly with you one on one to introduce the curriculum and get you started. When you are rolling along, you will join the standard class.

What If my student has previous coding experience?

A Academic Director will meet you to understand your learning goals, your previous coding experience and which course you are interested in pursuing. They will “level” you into the correct starting point in the curriculum you are pursuing.


Are Membership refundable if I cancel?

Memberships are non-refundable. If you fail to cancel prior to the subscription renewal date, we will not refund you. No exceptions.

What If I miss a class?

You may make up a class in the same billing cycle. For example, if you miss Tuesday’s class you may take the same class on Thursday as long as it is prior to your monthly subscription renewal date.

Are your courses certified? Can I earn college credit?

Our courses are certified by SigmaCoding.org a non-profit educational institution that serves to certify coding programs for primary school, middle school and high school courses.

What if I enroll two children? Is there a discount for siblings?

No. Unfortunately at this low price, the economics do not allow us to offer a sibling discount.

Can I Cancel my Membership?

You may Cancel at anytime by logging onto and cancelling from the Settings section. Subscriptions must be cancelled by the end of the business day prior to the subscription renewal date.

How long does it take to finish a course?

Generally, one academic semester to finish a course, although it does depend on the age of the student and the course.
