Homeroom Levels

What is a homeroom?

We want to make sure every student receives exactly the right amount of challenge every day. No matter what your previous experience or preferred learning speed, we have a curriculum and projects to accommodate it! We’ve broken web development into six different homerooms, and there’s one that’s just right for everyone.

Each homeroom is a breakout room on Zoom where we will teach a set of skills at a specific coding level. Students will start in a homeroom that matches their initial knowledge. Throughout the year, they will migrate through every stage, learning new skills in each one and leveling up.

What are the different homerooms?

Homeroom 1 - Basic HTML

Don’t know a bracket from a curly brace? We will walk you through everything from the very beginning. Don’t be intimidated! It’s easy to pick up.

Which homeroom should I start in?

We suggest reading what is being taught in each homeroom, beginning with Homeroom 1. Once you hit a new concept or one that you have not mastered yet, you should start there.
