Creating your first class

Now that your school is ready and your account is set up, you can start exploring your home page and create your first class! If you're not familiar with Classcraft, now's a good time to explore the resources in the Classcraft Playground and try out the demo class.

Once you're ready to move on and start your own adventure, click the Create my first class button on your home page!


It's possible that your account is all set up and you still can't create a class. Check with your admins to make sure they have Invited their school. Features need to be unlocked by an admin before you can access them!

If your school or district rosters students and teachers using Clever or ClassLink, you may see classes on your home page when you log in, before you've done anything at all! Students have already been assigned to these classes, as well as behavior settings, powers, and pledges. Click on Begin setup to start using such a class.

Once you start Creating a class, if you're assigned to multiple schools, you'll be prompted to select the school you want to create a class for. Click on its icon to continue. If you selected the wrong school, you can always click Back to return to the selection.

Enter your class name (i.e. Geography) and select the grade(s) of the students who will be participating in your class.

There are a few more options you can choose from:

The setup type determines the experience you'll be getting:

  • By selecting the Step by step setup, you'll have the full class progression. This is the default option for your first class.
  • Select Quick setup for a faster, leaner experience that gives you access to all the features with only a few setup steps. This is the default option for all classes after the first.

You can also select the language for this class (let's say you're a French second language teacher) if it's different from your account's language.


When you’re ready, click Confirm to complete the class creation process.
