At EXPLO, we encourage everyone “to respect the differences that make us individuals and to find the common ground that makes us a community.”
EXPLO offers the following programs: our three-week EXPLO 360 programs, our two-week EXPLO Focus programs, our one-week EXPLO Mini programs, and our three-week language immersion program, EXPLO English.

Offered on the campuses of Yale University, Wellesley College, and Wheaton College, our three-week programs feature the broadest range of course and activity options of any other summer programs in the world. EXPLO 360 encourages students to pursue current interests in novel ways and to try many other things that are completely new. This is your chance to teach and interact with students in a dynamic, innovative environment that encourages critical thinking, creative expression, and unleashing the imagination.

EXPLO Mini welcomes day students from the greater Boston and Providence areas to explore one-week concentrations on the campus of Wheaton College. Students are divided into three age groups: “Explorers” (entering grades 2+3), “Pioneers” (entering grades 4+5) and “Voyagers” (entering grades 6+7).
EXPLO English is a three-week program for students, aged 10 to 14 years old, who have formally studied English but are still at the early stages of developing conversational skills. Different than most other English language programs, EXPLO English students work on speaking through hands-on projects and activities. EXPLO English is offered on the campus of Wheaton College.
