UNBOX YOUR IMAGINATION

When you sign up for EXPLO Online Summer Programs you enroll in more than just a course. You enroll in a 5-day comprehensive program developed by experienced educators who have proven through practice how to light up young learners through hands-on projects and social learning.

Grades 2+3: Students at this age benefit from remaining with a consistent cohort, which is why we have structured our program for these grades to stay with the same two instructors throughout the week. Our 10:1 student-teacher ratio allows for our teachers to quickly get to know each student, what excites them, and how to support their individual learning needs. Students participate in a live class each day, exploring multiple topics and completing different hands-on projects to share with their peers. They also have the option of joining our daily community time gathering, live activity period, and the 24/7 Virtual Quad with loads of creative projects to explore outside of class time.

Grades 4-7: Students in grades 4-7 begin to develop greater independence and benefit from having more choices to explore their emerging strengths and interests. Choose one course and one elective each week, dive into each subject and engage in hands-on projects led by experienced instructors with a range of interests and hobbies. Students participate in two live learning sessions each day with students from across the U.S., and have the option to join our daily community time events, live activity period, and a 24/7 Virtual Quad with loads of creative projects to explore outside of class time.

  • Limitless Learning, One Week at a Time

    Live courses, activities, and community events available each day. Bonus: Students also receive access to the EXPLO Virtual Quad, with new creative activities, group sessions, and learning challenges added daily.

  • When it Comes to Fun, EXPLO Delivers

    All EXPLO courses are designed to maximize creativity and student engagement. Each of our courses comes with a curated set of materials, allowing students to participate in fun hands-on projects (and really think outside of the box!).

  • Online Learning,
    the Way it Should Be

    Online doesn’t have to mean compromise. At EXPLO, our faculty and staff are trained to meet kids where they’re at, deliver engaging learning experiences, and capture kids’ imaginations.
