    EXPLO Grades 8–10 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.
