Summer Programs

The Robinson Center’s Summer Program provides an intensive, inspirational, and in-depth learning experience for students who are prepared to take on the challenge. We offer a rich variety of math, science, literature, philosophy, and writing classes. Classes are small in size and taught by faculty members who are experienced teachers and specialists in their fields.

Summer Challenge, for current 5th-6th graders, emphasizes hands-on learning, field trips, and activities; Summer Stretch, for current 7th-10th graders, is more academic in nature, providing an accelerated, rigorous learning experience. Both programs are characterized by high-level thinking, intellectual adventure, and pursuit of understanding.

Please reach out to us at rcsummer@uw.edu with any questions.

Summer News

UW is not allowing in-person classes through Summer Session A, which coincides with the dates of our summer programs. We have, with much sadness, decided to cancel our Summer 2020 Challenge Program. The uniqueness of the Summer Challenge experience is the hands-on nature of our instruction, the student interactions that take place, and the community that is created in the classrooms. We could not replicate that in an online format.

The Summer Stretch Program, which is more academic in nature, lends itself to online classes. All of our Summer Stretch classes will be taught online this year. Stretch instructors are currently working to restructure their classes for the online format. Although the format is changing, the content will remain the same. Note that grades will be pass, fail, or incomplete, rather than letter grades. Families will have through May 15 to withdraw their child from the program, with a full tuition refund.

We appreciate your patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please email us at rcsummer@uw.edu.
