EXPLO is a place of firsts. Make your first website. Make your first Italian feast. Make your first friend from another state or another country. Live away from home for the first time — and learn how to make choices for yourself in the process.

Ever dreamed of a place where friendships happen easily and where learning and doing cool things (like defending a medieval castle with the trebuchets you built) fill your days? That’s EXPLO.


We want you to explore! With some of the best and coolest teachers you’ve ever had working and living with you, you can build a hovercraft, direct, act and shoot your own movie, or find patient zero in a simulated disease outbreak. Take trips to Fenway Park or Blue Man Group, launch model rockets and do the Numa Dance with hundreds of students. Choose from more than 70 courses and workshops. There’s plenty here that will capture your imagination.

Nature trails, art studios, theaters and playing fields are calling you. At Wheaton College, you’ll work and play in award-winning science labs; art studios and a woodshop; two theaters; an indoor pool, playing fields and the Haas Athletic Center. Your EXPLO summer may be your first time away from home, but we guarantee that you’ll find a second place to call home here.
