Most favorite afterschool activity ever. The place combines fun with a serious and systemic approach to teaching the children the fundamentals of coding and solving logic problems. The staff is friendly, accommodating, professional, loving, relatable and great. The facility is superb. Strongly recommend it!

– Margarit, mom

My son has had an amazing experience at Pixel Academy TriBeCa so far. He has been attending for about 3+ years now. All the instructors have been so thoughtful in their feedback. Pixel Academy offers after-school pick-ups from most downtown schools, so it's been super convenient for working parents. I'm so pleased that my son has felt a love for learning to code in such a relaxed and chill environment. LOVE IT!

– Alison, mom

My son LOVED pixel academy a few weeks ago.  Tony and the rest of the Brooklyn/Cobble Hill team were amazing and we're so grateful for the time he had.  We're definitely interested in getting him back there for afterschool and other camps in the future.

– Beau, dad

FAQ

How do I register for weekly after-school visits?
Take a look at our topics, availability and registration right here.
Can we try after school for a day?
Absolutely! Sign up for our Makerspace, where your child can take on a one-off project for that day.
Do I need to be a member to visit?
No! Just sign up through our registration portal and you'll be all set.
How long can my child stay, and is there an extra fee?
Our locations are open between 2:30 and 6:00 PM. A visit gets your child access for any and all of that time!
My child is 6, can I join after-school?
Our programs are tailored to be suitable for kids as young as 7. However, if you feel your son or daughter might be a good fit at a younger age, we'd be happy to speak to you about a single-day visit. Contact us!
What happens on school holidays?
On days when public school is closed, we're closed after school and our weekly programs will take a week off. Weekly visitors are not charged for those days. Check out our Holiday Camps for what's available on those days!
What if we're late?
Workshop Time doesn't start until 4:00 PM. Before then, we're hanging out, playing games, and getting ready for the workshop. And it's okay if you're a few minutes late to Workshop Time, too!
Can I add a new school to your pickup list?
We typically look for 5-10 kids signed up for consistent weekly visits in order to add a new school to our pickup list. Contact us if you're interested!
Can I sign up more than once per week?
Absolutely! If you sign up for the same Track twice per week, your child will have the skills reinforced and more time to work on their project. And if it's a different track, they'll get two uniquw learning experiences!
