"If it hadn't been for EXPLO I might have lost my voice in the crowd... I'm happy that such a program existed for students who were like me. Thanks, EXPLO, for giving me my voice."
Jordan M., EXPLO Alum
"I learn a lot more at EXPLO than I do in regular school. The subjects aren't as standardized, but still, the environment here is a lot more productive. In my rock band class I learned more - and in a fun and interesting way - than I learned all year in the music theory class I had taken at school."
Leland T., Student, EXPLO 360 at Yale
"The trips were, I must admit, amazing. As being a citizen of a different country, the experience of witnessing extraordinary pieces of architecture and technology (in New York and even at Six Flags) was breathtaking."
David H., EXPLO Alum

EXPLO 360 is a pre-college program that is tailored to the needs of high school students. Independence and choice are core elements of the EXPLO experience, and they are established within set physical and emotional boundaries to ensure our students’ well-being. Our staff checks in with students multiple times a day to make sure they are getting the most out of the program and to answer any questions they might have. Our 1-to-6 staff-to-student ratio not only ensures proper supervision of residence halls, trips, open time in town, and activities — it reassures that we know our students and can meet their needs.Safety and Security at Yale
