Our Academics are Far from Standard (Because You Are, Too)
EXPLO is a mindset — a place where we have big ideas; learn to collaborate, fail, and iterate; and say yes to opportunities and uncharted territory. For more than four decades, we have pioneered summer programs that combine the best aspects of summer — freedom, fun, and friends — with hands- on learning experiences that help students discover strengths and interests that light them up. The end goal at EXPLO isn’t a grade or how you perform on a standardized test. It’s to help students uncover the relevance and intrigue of a range of subjects and disciplines — to engage with a topic not just because there’s course credit at stake, but because life is a whole lot more exciting when you’re enthusiastic about a lot of different things.
I think it’s definitely important that you learn fromyour own mistakes , too. EXPLO is a good place to be able to do that. Nobody ever criticizes you if you make a mistake in your classes here. There are so many ideas that get thrown around from all the students all the time…all the mistakes are kind of a part of the process. Mason W. | EXPLO Student
