Environment, Habits, Course of Study, High Quality Books
The keys to this are study environment, study habits, course of study, and high quality books.
The self-teaching home school that the Robinson children developed has been so effective that each of the children is far surpassing Dr. Robinson's own accomplishments at equivalent ages - even though he was, himself, so well prepared that he was accepted by MIT, Harvard, Rice, and CalTech. After graduation from CalTech and then the University of California at San Diego, he was immediately given a faculty position at UCSD and was considered one of the best prepared young scientists of his generation.

Moreover, this teaching program requires almost no teacher interaction. It is not dependent upon the teachers individual education, and it routinely allows the student to acquire skills and knowledge that are beyond those of their parents.
Academic knowledge is in books. Each child must learn to extract and use that knowledge to the greatest extent that his or her abilities permit. This curriculum enables the student to learn these skills with very little teacher help, and it provides the student with 120,000 pages of knowledge from the greatest science, history, literature, economics, reference, and general education books in the English language. These are reinforced by frequent and appropriate examinations.
Home schooling not only provides a superior childhood and family environment, it also has potential to transform American society by building new generations of more capable young adults. Home schooling is, however, often held back by the academic education of the parents or by their lack of time to become home school teachers.
The Robinson Curriculum solves both of these problems. Children using this curriculum are able to advance at their own rate through learning of skills and facts whether or not their parents have this knowledge - and to do so on their own without an active teacher. The Robinson Home School Curriculum Version 2.2 is an extraordinary system of home-education that exceeds, in quality and effectiveness, any other home-school curriculum - and at a very low price.
