Camp dates: June 9-12, 2019
Deadline to register: May 4, 2019
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 interested in teaching as a profession may apply, but first preference will be given to students within the top 25 percent of their high school class. If your school does not have a ranking available at the time of application, an analysis of your high school transcript will be conducted to evaluate your academic performance individually. The application process is competitive. Camp admission decisions will be sent to student approximately one week after the May 4 deadline.
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.
