The Kindergarten Experience

Kindergarten is a special time in your child's life. It marks their transition into schooling, a great period of growth and discovery. However, every child is unique, and their readiness for this transition can vary widely. Some children are eager and ready, while others may be hesitant. This is perfectly normal, and we’re prepared to consider your child's individual needs during this exciting time.

Kindergarten should not be a one-size-fits-all experience. Whether your child is outgoing or shy, curious or more reserved, has experience from preschool or is exploring group learning for the first time, it’s OK! We’re ready to welcome your child with open arms. We start every day with learning, fun, and friendship. Kindergarten should be a time of exploration and growth.

If you’re seeking a Kindergarten experience that values flexibility, inclusivity, individualized learning, and support for anxious or uncertain students, we invite you to explore the online school options at New Code Academy. We prioritize getting to know your student and building strong relationships with students and families. Together, we can give your child a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning and success.

Benefits of Flexible Learning

One of the remarkable features of New Code Academy is the flexibility we offer to parents and students. Imagine accessing a world-class education from the comfort of your own home. With virtual school, this becomes a reality. Our virtual school brings the world to your doorstep, allowing your child to explore a wide range of subjects and interests.

Families and students love the flexibility of virtual learning, which permits them to balance education with other needs, commitments and interests. Families are no longer tied to one geographic location—and forget checking the traffic report before heading out to school every morning!

Our virtual school schedules are designed with young learners in mind, offering the flexibility to adapt to individual needs. Students can access a wealth of resources, expert teachers, and educational opportunities at their fingertips—tuition-free. 

Personalized Learning Opportunities

Personalization is a core principle at New Code Academy. We recognize that each student is unique, with their own strengths, interests, and learning styles.

Through tailored learning plans, students receive an education designed to meet their specific needs and abilities. Our dedicated teachers work closely with students across all grade levels to identify their strengths and areas for growth, ensuring that they receive the support and challenges necessary for success. Virtual school allows for one-on-one attention, creating a learning experience that truly meets your child where they are and helps them reach their full potential. 

Early Exposure to Technology and Computer Science

Gone are the days when technology was limited to a few specific careers; now, it’s vital that all students have access to and a foundational understanding of technology. But we believe just using technology isn’t enough—that’s why we infuse computer science into our curriculum, helping students improve their problem-solving and digital literacy. At New Code Academy, we design dynamic new pathways in K-12 learning through computer science. That means students receive a cutting-edge education designed to provide them with the skills they’ll need for the future.

Students exposed to computer science programming show increased skills in other subject areas and improvements in creativity, math skills, reasoning, problem-solving, and more. In short, no matter the goals your student sets for their future, we know technology and computer science will help them realize their dreams. 

Traditional School Doesn’t Work for Us

We’ve heard this from many families. Traditional schooling is fantastic, but for many families, it doesn’t meet their unique needs. Whether you’re managing busy schedules, looking for more personalized educational opportunities, or looking for an environment where your child feels more comfortable and able to succeed (or all of the above!), New Code Academy is here to support you every step.

School anxiety is a common concern for parents as their children progress through their educational journey. School anxiety can manifest at any grade level and may stem from various factors such as social pressures, academic challenges, or personal experiences. Or, your child may have competing interests or medical concerns that make traditional school a challenge. We understand the importance of creating a learning environment where all students can thrive.

Homeschool families often find virtual schooling a happy medium between returning to a brick-and-mortar school and finding resources independently. Virtual schooling offers the best of both worlds— homeschool benefits plus access to lessons and materials, certified teachers and counselors, and a network of peers with a similar experience.

In a virtual setting, students can learn in a comfortable and familiar environment, building their confidence and developing a love for learning at their own pace. Our educators work closely with families and students to set expectations and develop a personalized learning plan that allows students to actively participate in their education.
