A Balanced Approach to Screen Time

We understand the concerns associated with screen time and are committed to a balanced approach in our coding curriculum. While we acknowledge the importance of technology in education, we also prioritize the well-being of our students. Initiatives like screen-free Wednesdays and structured coding sessions ensure that our students engage with technology meaningfully and healthily, fostering a productive relationship with the digital world.

The Coding Curriculum: A Progressive Journey

Our coding curriculum is thoughtfully designed to grow with our students, starting as early as the second grade.

  • Early Exploration with Scratch Jr.: Our coding journey commences in the second grade with Scratch Jr., where our young coders learn the fundamentals through intuitive, block-based programming, laying a solid foundation for logical thinking and problem-solving.

  • Advancing to Scratch: As students become more comfortable with the basics, they transition to Scratch, delving deeper into more complex projects and concepts, further igniting their passion for creation and innovation.

  • Transition to Text-Based Coding: With a solid grasp of block-based coding, students progress to text-based programming languages such as Python and C#, using platforms like Unity to explore game development, app creation, and more. This phase marks a significant step towards mastering the skills required for the technological challenges of tomorrow.

Beyond Coding: Developing the Whole Person

At River Tech, coding is just one part of our broader educational mission. We integrate technology education with performing arts, crafts, life skills, and Christian teachings, ensuring our students develop not only as proficient coders but as well-rounded individuals. This holistic approach prepares them to navigate the complexities of the future with confidence, creativity, and a strong moral compass.


In the rapidly evolving digital age, coding has become as fundamental as reading and writing. At River Tech, we don't just teach coding; we inspire a deep-seated passion for innovation, balanced with the richness of the arts and the depth of Christian values. Our students emerge not just as coders, but as visionary creators and thinkers, ready to lead with wisdom and integrity.
