summer program

Summer Learning

We know that you and your child have a busy school year, and both look forward to a rest during the summer vacation; but be careful not to take your foot off the gas with learning. Studies have shown that by the end of the summer vacation students perform at least 2 months behind their end of term scores – and that’s not even accounting for the 3 months of progress that could have been made!

Here at Explore we want to be your partner in making the summer an exciting time for growth and improvement, rather than regression. Our unique environment, flexible scheduling, and summer workshops make Explore an exciting place to be in the summer and beyond!

  • Flexible, simple scheduling to fit around camps and vacations
  • Member-only skill workshops focused on preparing your student for the next grade level
  • A fun, relaxed environment which provides a welcome break from school
  • Personalized resources to support your student’s academic progress
  • Summer student assessments to guide your new semester learning strategy
  • Summer-only learning activities such as Summer Book Club
  • At-home practice options to support if you are out of town or cannot attend
  • All the wonderful benefits of the regular Explore service
  • Option to upgrade to the “Back to School Booster” package if you want to attend more frequently during the summer


What do our members think?

Explorer Horizons are the best learning centers in the DFW metroplex by far. My son was not his age and grade level before he started. He was also struggling to pass a private school exam to get admitted. The managers and tutors from the Garland location are the best!! They helped him so much he is now in his age and grade level. Not only that but he passed the exam with the help of Explore Horizons team! Thank you so much you guys!! I totally recommend it to everyone…what are you waiting for? Get your free trial today! 🙂

Mr Rashid, Garland parent

My son loves Garland branch tutors.
He is always excited to go to his classes and I noticed his improvement by the 2nd week which was shocking for me.
I am happy that i found such a place to help him.

Maisaa Alhindi Garland parent

I was totally blown away at the progress she made in one month at Explore Horizons… I truly could sing the praises of Explore Horizons and how it helped my daughter but I haven’t yet mentioned the thing I (selfishly) loved the most about them… The hours closed late on week nights and they were open seven days a week. The best part though was that I didn’t have to make an appointment – we could drop her off at any time. As a working mom this was crucial to making it work… From one mom to another, I can genuinely recommend Explore Horizons as a tutoring program!
