For Students

Is this course for you?

If you already have a substantive homework load and are currently enrolled in AP, IB or Honors courses in your high school, then this might not be the right fit for you.  However, if you are under-challenged in your current educational environment, and able to commit to a workload of probably 10-15 hours per week (for real!), then this course could be exactly what you need.  We offer thorough and personal feedback on your work, clear expectations and objectives, and a supportive, positive on-line environment in which to explore and develop your academic skills.

What will you gain by this course?

Our courses are designed to transition students to college-level work, so that they can be successful, from the very start, in their college coursework.  We also provide access to an on-line community of students with similar interests, goals and ambitions.

For Districts

For Districts What does this program offer your students?

Our courses provide the additional challenge and acceleration that districts can’t always provide, due to logistical and financial limitations.  Because our courses can draw from many different districts to populate one class, our financial model is sustainable and robust.  For those students who have exhausted all other educational avenues and yet still need challenge, the Robinson Center can be the answer.  Our courses provide students with both an advanced, in-depth learning experience and the high-level skills so vital to success in college.

What will your District gain by this program?

For small districts, it can be challenging to provide courses that serve the needs of all students.  The cost of additional staffing and curriculum development often depend upon a sufficiently large number of students to make such courses viable. An on-line, supported model, with appropriate curriculum and professional development included, can solve this difficulty and help a district make sure all of its students reach their full potential.  We can help districts reach their race & equity goals, by providing easy access to appropriately challenging curriculum.  In tandem with teaching these on-line courses, the Robinson Center also works with the District’s teachers so that within a year or two the on-line courses can be taught by District staff.  Our model allows schools to gradually take over the delivery of the course, once district teachers are trained by our staff.

Currently we are offering one course, Academic Composition, with plans to add more soon.
