Focus Programs: A Closer Look
While our experience shows us that the vast majority of students benefit most from attending an Exploration Program, we also understand that there are young people out there that have already discovered what they really love and want to dig deeper into a single topic. A number of our students have discovered an interest in our Exploration Programs and then they ask us how they can connect with industry professionals and learn about all of the careers available to them in a specific field. How do Focus Programs differ from Exploration Programs?
- Each Focus Program is a course in a single topic. All of our Focus Program topics were selected from the most popular courses that we offer at Exploration Programs. You may prefer a closer look — that's great! But if you're not ready to dedicate the majority of your time to a singular pursuit, know that you can explore that subject (and much more) at an Exploration Program.
- Focus Programs are still rooted in exploration — rather than an introduction to a range of subject areas, at Focus you’ll explore a range of careers in a single discipline
- At Focus, your days are more structured around the topic area your program is exploring; however, you still have the opportunity to engage with people from all over the world, and to immerse yourself in different activities and events in the afternoons or evenings
- If you are looking for career exploration in a single field — and to connect with industry leaders who can provide guidance and expertise — you should choose a Focus Program
Still Unsure? Our Team Can Help!
If you’re still unsure about which of our programs is a right fit for you, contact our Admission Office or schedule a call for a time that is convenient for you. All of our Admission Officers work and live at the programs during the summer, so they can walk you through the programs and what a day (and a week) at EXPLO is like. They can also learn more about your interests and help guide you toward the program that will be the most rewarding.
