What will students use to code?

It is up to your student's teacher as to where you will code. In the past, Replit, an internet browser IDE, has been the most common IDE used since it only requires an internet connection. During the first class, teachers will walk students through how to set up Replit.

However, students are welcome to use their own IDEs if they feel comfortable with them. IDEs such as Eclipse and Textpad are quite common and can be downloaded as apps on most laptops and PCs. 

When are classes held?

Classes are held once a week on weekends(Saturday & Sunday) at 10 am or 11 am EST. They are 90 minutes long with a 10-minute break splitting lecture and classwork time.

Is there homework?

Yes, most classes will have homework assigned to students which will likely be a review of the topics learned in that class. Towards the end of the session, the students will be assigned a project and their homework will be to work on that. 

What is the student-to-teacher ratio?

At YCF, we pride ourselves on maintaining an efficient and helpful learning environment. Thats it why we focus on keeping our student:teacher ratio to be under 5:1. This way, your child feels comfortable with our teachers and sees them to be more than just a mentor but also a friend and role models, ensuring the best possible learning environment. 

Where are classes held?

Classes are held online on either Zoom or Google Meet. Your teachers will provide you with the link via email before the first class. Please make sure you join the meeting 5 minutes early to allow teachers to have enough time to cover all topics intended.
