This is where you can pursue your strengths, discover new interests, and make friends who expand your horizons. Get ready for a summer of exploration and a lifetime of friendship.

Here, students from around the world come together to explore their strengths and interests, exercise their independence, challenge each others’ perspectives, and find the common ground between them. We welcome every student’s unique experiences and perspectives, celebrate their individuality, and shine a spotlight on their potential. Come as you are — and discover who you have the power to become.
EXPLO Grades 8 + 9 is hosted at Sarah Lawrence College, a 44-acre wooded campus tucked alongside the tree-lined village of Bronxville, New York. Living on a college campus when you’re at the beginning of your high school journey is not only a lot of fun — it’s also a great learning experience. Some of the life skills our students report picking up from residential life include:
- Managing their schedule
- Doing laundry on their own
- Managing money
- Balancing healthy choices and treats at meals
And while you’ll learn what it’s like to live away from home, you won’t be on your own. Our staff members, faculty, and administrators are here to help guide you through your summer experience, encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone, and make sure you get to experience the endless opportunities an EXPLO summer has to offer while feeling as safe and secure as possible.
