Creating a new CodeHS Section

Enter a name for your section as a first step.

Then, choose the course from CodeHS Courses or Your Courses that you want to enroll your new section in.

  • CodeHS Courses are official CodeHS courses with default settings. When you choose an official course, a new course will be built for your section using our recommended assignments and settings. With CodeHS Pro, you can edit assignments and settings after the section is created.

  • Your Courses are courses built for sections you've previously created. If you'd like to reuse assignments and configurations for your new section, choose one of these courses.

You can filter for courses designed for middle or high school students, Hour of Code courses, or other courses and content:

Choose between your own courses and CodeHS pre-made courses
