EXPLO Info Meetings are a great way to learn more about our programs, our teaching and learning philosophy, and our campus community. Hosted by our president, program heads, and admission directors, Families often tell us that attending an EXPLO Info Meeting is all it took to convince them that EXPLO was the right fit for their family.
We know your time is valuable, and we want to make sure you know what to expect from the Info Meeting you decide to attend. We’ve included here brief descriptions of the events and who will host them. A full listing of events by program and grade level is available below.
All of our Info Meetings will address how EXPLO is planning for a safe and healthy summer on campus, including testing, EXPLO-exclusive on-site health centers, student housing, travel requirements, and community safety standards.
Each presentation is 40 minutes long, followed by a Q+A where we will answer questions submitted during and prior to the event.
