The ExpLORE summer camp is designed for rising high school seniors interested in a career in the classroom. The four-day camp introduces students to teacher education programs, leadership opportunities, career opportunities and courses of study to enrich their knowledge of the teaching profession. As part of the ExpLORE summer camp experience, students will be housed overnight in residence halls on the Texas A&M University campus and participate in activities that allow them to experience first hand teaching as a career, including activities with various departments, team building activities and college planning workshops.
Any rising high school senior who has completed his or her junior year and is ranked in the Top 25 percent of his or her class is eligible to apply to ExpLORE. If your school does not have a ranking available at the time of application, you must include a letter from your counselor indicating your ranking. The application process is competitive; students will be notified directly if they are selected to attend.
Application and Fees
The cost to attend ExpLORE is $150 and is nonrefundable. If you are unable to pay this fee, the college can consider reducing or waiving the fee based on an official letter from your high school counselor indicating that you have financial need. Evidence that you are on a free or reduced lunch plan or that you have received an ACT or SAT fee waiver would be helpful as we make decisions regarding the camp fee. Waiver selections are made on a case-by-case basis. The college is currently accepting applications for the camp.
