We soar to new heights.
Each day at EXPLO is designed to encourage learners to dive right into new and different subjects and activities to develop their strengths and build new skills — surprising themselves with all that they’re capable of.
Wheaton College | MassachusettsEXPLO Junior
We believe kids in this age group are innately adventurous and resilient. When we empower them to make choices, give them permission to make mistakes, and encourage them explore, it opens up their eyes and minds to a bigger, brighter, bolder world — a world in which anything is possible.

Soaring to New HeightsOur People
Students, Staff, and Alumni
Our students, staff, and alumni — who come from 50 US states and 93 countries — form our global community of explorers. Each and every one of us is brimming with ideas, curiosity, and strengths; but together, we accomplish unbelievable things — all thanks to the good influence of the amazing people around us.
Summer 2022The EXPLO Experience
EXPLO isn’t like summer camp — but it isn’t like school, either. Here, each day is designed to let our students try different things, develop their strengths, and build new skills. On any given day, students could be defending their castle under siege, designing their own clothing line, and investigating a crime scene — all before lunch. And since our students structure their own day, they get to choose the courses and electives they take and the activities and trips they participate in.
Endless Moments of Discovery
Every element of EXPLO is designed to make powerful moments of discovery. From mealtime to courses to weekend trips, there’s seldom a time without a question to ponder, a challenge to complete, or an “a-ha!” moment waiting to happen.

Summer 2022Our Campus
With science labs in a LEED-certified building, beautiful art studios, rooftop greenhouses, and an on-campus weather station, we’re proud to hold our Junior Program at Wheaton College. Its location in the center of Norton, Massachusetts is perfectly situated 38 miles from Boston and 25 miles from Providence, Rhode Island. Connected by a small, picturesque pedestrian bridge, campus life at EXPLO revolves around the two sides of Peacock Pond. One side of the pond features our residence halls and dining hall; the other, our air-conditioned classrooms, recreational quad, and athletic spaces.
