Don't Let Summer Adventure Pass You By!

The Robinson Center summer programs offer a rich variety of math, science, literature, philosophy, and writing classes. Classes are small in size and taught by instructors who are experienced teachers and specialists in their fields.

Get to know Seattle in a whole new way, from the rocks under your feet to the Space Needle and all the living things in between in, Imagining Seattle and Beyond. In Living Literature, students will explore the past through field trips to local gardens, museums, and parks, as well as experiential activities that will immerse them in the Victorian experience. Students will study urban planning and architecture and collectively design and build their own functioning city in the always popular, Next City. These and many other classes are still available for current 5th & 6th grade students in this year's Summer Challenge program.

In Summer Stretch, students in grades 7 through 10 take more academically rigorous journeys. While most of our classes already have waitlists, a handful of exciting courses are still available. In Writer's Workshop: Creative Writing for Critical Thinking, students will hone their critical thinking and persuasive writing skills by analyzing works from a wide range of genres while grappling with the hard work of connecting with their audience. In the collaborative class, Creative City, the city is the classroom and our neighbors are the teachers, as students write and sketch their way through Seattle to better understand how writers use the urban environment as an inspiration for their work.
