At Rex, we have matched Colorado’s vision with our own.

At Rex Academy, we are dedicated to building quality computer science education for all ages. Our core belief is that computer science should be available to all learners as it is a gateway to many opportunities.

Learning to code is comparable to learning reading, writing, and math for this generation. Rex makes this process easy and enjoyable for all!

Alabama is a STEM rich state.

During the 2016 legislative session, the Colorado General Assembly passed House Bill 16-1198 requiring the development of voluntary Computer Science academic standards for secondary students. The new law allows districts to elect to adopt these standards for high school students. 


The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) is a membership organization that supports and promotes the teaching of computer science. They provide opportunities for K–12 teachers and their students to better understand computer science and to more successfully prepare themselves to teach and learn.  Colorado has a chapter that holds frequent educator gatherings.

State Of Colorado Requirements

Colorado does not yet require that all high school must offer computer science as an elective credit.

Computer science may count as math credits for graduation.

Rock CS, The Rocky Mountain Computer Science Conference for P-12 Educators, a professional development opportunity is designed by Adams 12 Five Star Schools and St. Vrain Valley School District and is open to all Colorado educators.

Colorado has eight concepts to prepare graduates in computer science.

  1. Develop, utilize and evaluate algorithms, to model and solve problems.
  2. Systematically analyze a problem using decomposition and abstraction to formulate a solution.
  3. Represent and analyze data in order to generate new knowledge and capability.
  4. Use systems thinking to describe networks and common software and hardware components.
  5. Develop systems solutions from a set of specifications to complete a design process.
  6. Recognize and analyze security concepts.
  7. Design and create programs, individually and collaboratively, for a variety of disciplines.
  8. Create computational artifacts that consider security from tampering, malicious or otherwise
