Extended Day and Overnight Opportunities

EXPLO Boston offers an extended day program for day students. Students may arrive as early as 7:30 a.m. and eat breakfast at the program. Some families may have commitments that make it difficult for students to return home before dinnertime. To help meet family needs, day students are welcome to stay late for the evening events as long as they sign up for the Late Bus or have a ride home. They may eat dinner at the program and then participate in evening activities until 8:45 p.m. each night. Day students are also welcome to sleep over in the EXPLO Boston dorms up to two nights a week.

Meal Fee: Students arriving for breakfast, or staying for dinner or an overnight are charged a small additional fee to cover dinner and/or breakfast. This fee is deducted from the student’s Trips + Sundries Account.
