"CTY Online Programs has put together a wonderful introduction to web design course. The instructor was very responsive and patient. The course was clear and well thought out. My son has had a whole new world opened up to him. I believe it has changed him for the better, specifically as a thinking person, especially in relationship to computers."
"My son’s instructor has a great ability to interact with kids. He was able to teach a technical subject to my son amazingly well. He kindled interest in the subject. He is very dedicated and provided good feedback."
"The instructor helped my son learn how to independently complete the course successfully. She gave helpful and timely feedback and guidance to me and my son. By the end of the course, my son was corresponding with the instructor and managing the course all on his own-- what a great skill to learn above and beyond material she helped him through, which he loved. He can't wait to take the next course."
