Yale Campus and Facilities

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.

EXPLO faculty are more than just teachers. They are mentors and role models who are with you every step of your EXPLO experience.

Our faculty positions are extremely demanding and competitive, and the talented and passionate people we hire serve students in the classroom, on the field, and in the dorms. They are incredibly relatable and forge strong connections to our students.

All of our staff receive tremendous support and guidance from our full-time summer Dean’s Office and Curriculum Office, as well as seasoned educators and administrators throughout their tenure with EXPLO. Our teaching faculty undertake months-long training and curriculum development in the EXPLO teaching method before they step foot on a campus.
