New York

At Rex, we have matched New York’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.

In 2018, the New York state Legislature passed, and the Governor signed into law required the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to create a workgroup and present draft NYS K-12 Computer Science Learning Standards to the Commissioner of Education and the Board of Regents for approval. New York is preparing all of their students to live and work in a dynamic, technology-driven 21st-Century world.

“Technology is a large part of children’s lives, and the ability to understand and use technology safely and effectively to learn, communicate and create is critical for 21st century life, work and civic engagement,” Board of Regents Vice Chancellor T. Andrew Brown said. “The COVID-19 emergency has magnified the digital divide that separates so many of our most vulnerable students from their peers. As the Board of Regents and the Department work to ensure that all students have access to a high-quality education, it’s critical that comprehensive technology learning is available to our youngest students and continues throughout their scholastic career.”
