Summer Challenge

What is Summer Challenge?

Summer Challenge is an academically advanced summer program for children who will have completed the 5th or 6th grade. Summer Challenge provides motivated students with an intensive, hands-on, fun, and educational experience in areas outside of the traditional school curriculum.

Registration for Summer Challenge 2022 will open on March 20th at 4:00 PM. The Challenge program begins on July 11th and ends on July 29th. The program runs for three weeks, five days a week from 9:00 AM to 2:20 PM. Classes are held in person at the University of Washington Seattle campus. Classes are small and instructors are all specialists in their field. There are no tests, students are not graded, and there is little homework; it’s all about delving deeply into a subject of interest.  Please note that no decision has been made yet about having online-only classes in addition to the in-person classes for the summer of 2022. Likewise, we will not make a decision about whether we will be able to offer before-class and after-class care until closer to registration.
