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.
"EXPLO is a place where my son's uniqueness is celebrated; where he can explore his varied interests without interference from parents and discover what truly makes him tick; where his 'best friends' are from all over the world instead of from right next door; and a place where he matures more in three weeks than he does in an entire school year at home."
Daryl G., Parent, EXPLO 360 at Wheaton
"I love that everyone is completely different, but we all get along. Before EXPLO, I never would've thought my best friends would be from all over the world."
Jamila D., Student, EXPLO 360 at Wheaton
"The unfailingly confident, happy, excited, and 'I’m interested in you and your child' energy that every single staff member exudes is truly amazing."
Rebecca P., Parent, EXPLO 360 at Wheaton
