Program Information

The 2024 Stretch program runs July 1-25, Mon-Thurs from 9am-2:20pm. There is no class on July 4th. Registration will open on February 11th at 4pm.

The Stretch program offers students an opportunity to focus deeply on a single area of interest for four weeks. Whether you want to build a robot, master essay writing, participate in a mock trial, or explore the world of mathematical thinking, Summer Stretch has over two dozen classes to dive into.

The Robinson Center does not grant high school credit for Stretch courses. It is the decision of each individual school and district as to whether a Summer Stretch course qualifies for school credit/placement. If students would like school credit for their Summer Stretch course, they MUST obtain permission from their school counselor or principal in advance.

Families are strongly encouraged to ensure that their child will be able to attend all 15 days of class to get the most out of their Summer Stretch experience. All students must arrive at their assigned classrooms by 9:00 AM, where attendance will be taken by the teaching team. Families must report a student’s absence by emailing the teacher at the teacher’s UW email address and copying the Robinson Center at prior to 8:30 AM. There is no before-class or after-class care for Summer Stretch; however, students are welcome to use the Robinson Center in Guggenheim Annex as a place to study before or after class. The Center opens at 8:00 AM and closes at 4:30 PM during the program.
