In this week’s Philosophy Friday, 2018 Pulitzer Prize Winner for General Nonfiction, James Forman, Jr. — a three-year EXPLO Instructor who went on to launch the Maya Angelou Charter School and is now a Yale Law Professor — discusses the importance challenging your own perspectives.
In this week’s Philosophy Friday, EXPLO and MIT Trustee, Brian Hughes discusses the value of dismantling educational silos in favor of liberal arts.
"EXPLO is one of the first places where Alison really stepped up and started advocating for others... that was for her a start in real confidence, in terms of [Alison thinking] 'This is how I should behave as a citizen of the world.'"
Christine and Brett Rogers, parents of three Exploration students discuss how EXPLO has helped their children find the confidence to advocate for others, face problems head on, and calculate effective and worthwhile risk-taking.
For more than 40 years, EXPLO has created remarkable teaching and learning experiences that inspire curiosity and encourage young people to embark on a lifelong journey of turning over stones, taking healthy risks, and pursuing that which they only ever imagined.
Each summer, EXPLO welcome students from more than 40 states and 70 countries to our campuses where we explore the world of people and ideas, and celebrate the differences that bring us together as a community. The above video is a comprehensive overview of EXPLO summer programs played at our Info Meetings where families learn about our two and three-week Programs.
As we welcome the year 2018, everyone here at EXPLO would like to wish you a new year full of exploration and adventure! We put together a short slideshow of just a handful of our fun summer moments — made all the more meaningful set to the EXPLO Alma Mater, a wonderful tune composed by our former EXPLO at Wheaton's 2016 kapellmeister Greg Daigle.

It was another incredible summer of exploration and discovery at all of our EXPLO programs, and we have you — our unbelievable students and families — to thank for it. We miss you already and hope to see you all again in 2018. Until then, have a wonderful school year, stay curious, and keep exploring!
