Note from the CodeHS Founders

We’ve been excited to see millions of students learning on CodeHS since we started in 2012. We know this comes with great responsibility to protect student data. We promise to take care of student data, keep it secure, give you control of your data and comply with privacy requirements for districts and states.

We hope you enjoy using CodeHS to bring computer science to your district.
