Like other schools, Coderrific Academy, the Newark-based extracurricular coding school for kids aged 7 to 17, is closing its doors and suspending its after-school programs as the community practices social distancing in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

During this time, it will be offering virtual classes — all for free starting — on Wednesday, March 18, with new classes opening up as needed.

“We, at Coderrifc Academy, wanted to do the right thing,” said CEO Jonathan Adly in an emailed statement. “Students need to stay on track on their learning journey and our instructors can stay working during this difficult time.”

Coderrific offers classes in the foundational language Scratch, Javascript, HTML/CSS, Python, C# and the game engine Unity. Students learn how to build computer programs, mobile apps and websites. No coding experience is required for level 1 classes.

If you are interested in enrolling a child in a Coderrific virtual class, contact the school via its online contact form.
