About us

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

Built by a Parent, Loved by Kids!

Rex Academy was founded in 2014 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 and a few friends in 2015. By 2018, she expanded Rex Academy to after-school programs, summer camps, and schools. She built partnerships with the Girl Scouts of America, the YMCA, and many private schools.

Business doubled by 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.

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.
