Make Summer Meaningful

You’re constantly being asked what you want to be when you grow up. At EXPLO, we’re more interested in who you want to be — and helping you plan to make it reality.

It takes time to figure out who you are. EXPLO is the place to start.

Develop your strengths and discover new interests as part of a community of creative thinkers and doers. Make friends for life with students from 40 states and 70 countries. With more than 90 courses and workshops to choose from, you can explore careers and topics you’ve always been interested in — and begin to uncover a range of possibilities available to you.


The students who make the conscious decision to attend EXPLO are the type of people who will invent the next Facebook, put humans on Mars, or become the leader of their country.

- Malik D., EXPLO Alum

Our 3-week Exploration programs encourage students to explore a wide variety of subjects to help them identify their strengths and interests.

Customized by age and interest, EXPLO champions rigor with playfulness because we believe deep learning is achieved when students are at ease and having fun. Why? Because they are more willing to take intellectual and creative risks that lead to greater learning and burgeoning curiosity. 

Our alumni are proof: they are social media titans, serial entrepreneurs, acclaimed actors, best-selling novelists, award-winning researchers, and patent-heavy inventors. Who will you be?
