The La Jolla Learning EXPLORE! Program provides students with the opportunity to delve into subjects of their interest that go beyond traditional curriculum with the goal of fostering a love for learning and promoting personal growth.

EXPLORE! Core Components:

Personalized learning paths, expert mentorship, and project-based experiences tailored to each student’s interests and goals.

  • Similarly to a college course catalog, students can choose which course is most interesting to them prior to enrolling. 

  • Each course includes various modes of learning, including reading, videos, writing, and discussions. 

Mentorship and Guidance:

  • Students are paired with an expert educator who acts as a mentor, guiding them through their learning journey.

  • Their mentor will provide support, encourage critical thinking, and help your student connect their learning to real-world scenarios.


  • The program emphasizes hands-on projects that allow students to apply what they learn in practical, real-world contexts.

  • There will be two choice projects regardless of which course students choose that will allow them to apply what they’re learning in a creative context that will grow their critical thinking skills.
