Rex Academy Helps Every Kid Develop the Computer Science Skills Needed to Thrive.

Imagine Giving Kids Everything They Need to Understand Computer Science.

If you don’t know how to code, it might sound difficult. If you don’t have the budget to learn or train a teacher, it might even sound impossible.

Rex Academy changes that.

Rex Academy offers a complete solution that any adult can use to empower kids to learn Computer Science, regardless of their own coding experience.

Too Many Kids Think Computer Science “isn’t for them”.

With Rex Academy, every child gets the curriculum and support they need to learn valuable Computer Science and Cybersecurity skills.

Built for teachers of all experience levels, Rex Academy gives schools the resources
of a complete CS Lab so students get a quality CS education, no matter the school’s size or funding.

Built by a Parent, Loved by Kids!

Rex Academy was founded in 2019 by software engineer Sandhya Padala. When she wanted her kids to learn the Computer Science skills employers want, she couldn’t find a good option. So, she decided to build one.

Sandhya began teaching her kids, a few friends and began to expand her programs to after-school programs, summer camps, and schools. She built partnerships with the Girl Scouts of America, the YMCA, and many private schools.

In 2019, and Rex Academy’s online Computer Science classes were born.

Today, Rex Academy helps thousands of kids learn Computer Science and Cybersecurity, fulfilling Sandhya’s dream of bringing practical skills to kids in a fun, engaging way.

Our Vision

Rex Academy is committed to providing more opportunities for every K-12 student to enter into computer science and cybersecurity careers.

Our Mission

To end generational poverty by providing educational opportunities in Computer Science and Cybersecurity for all K-12 Students.
