The RC is a leader in the nation for developing programs that serve highly capable young pre-college and college students.

Through specialized early entrance programs, the Robinson Center has been a leader in preparing highly capable young students for college success at the University of Washington for more than forty years. With expanding programs to meet the changing needs of young students, Summer Enrichment classes were developed more than a decade ago, followed shortly by Saturday classes, to diversify enrichment opportunities for students in Kindergarten through 10th grade. By providing challenging, accelerated learning opportunities in a vibrant, intellectual community, the Robinson Center is a site for research and discovery and maintains the UW's position as an internationally renowned center of gifted education.
