Rex Academy is a woman and minority-owned business expanding access to computer science education.
She faced the same problem as millions of parents—she couldn’t find a good computer science program for her children.
Her nine-year-old son said, “I want to learn to make video games!” But his school didn’t teach computer science—not surprising since in 2017 only 32 computer science teachers graduated nationwide.
So she started teaching her son on her own. Then his friends joined. Next, his school asked, “Can you teach computer science summer camps?”
She said yes and soon Rex went from 2 camps to 45! But, not all parents could afford the camps.
Sandhya grew up impoverished, in a 300 square-foot home in India with a family of five. Computer science changed her life. She wants to give all children the chance to succeed. So she created Rex Academy.
Students have already spent more than 500,000 hours on our platform. We took a computer science class in Texas with a pass rate of just 70% all the way up to 100% on the Advanced Placement Computer Science exam. Our remote teachers helped many schools solve their teacher shortage crisis. And 95% of the students we’ve tracked went on to major in Computer Science.
To end generational poverty by providing educational opportunities in computer science and cybersecurity for all K-12 students.
K-12 computer science curriculum on an AI platform that enables any teacher to teach computer science.
Rex Academy’s founder, Sandhya Padela, grew up in poverty before becoming a software engineer with her own team at Harley Davidson. Programming changed her life, because it gave her a high-demand skill set and a path to career success.
By teaching computer science courses, you can prepare students for the careers of the future—no matter what their circumstances. Not only that, but computer science helps students develop a well-rounded education and the skill set to be thriving digital citizens in the online world of tomorrow.
