Exploris offers a rigorous experiential education that empowers learners to improve the world.

The Exploris School is a diverse learning community that engages students in a challenging, relevant, relationship-based education. Through experiential, project-based learning we empower students to foster a just and sustainable world. Exploris has been serving students in the downtown Raleigh community for over 20 years and is committed to growing our school in size and diversity to expand support and opportunity for all students. Our educational program is built around four core pillars: Global Education, Project-Based Learning, Co-Teaching, and Responsive Classroom. Curriculum is designed around essential questions and aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. Students learn through hands-on activities, service learning, field experiences, and competency-based grading that allows all students the opportunity to grow and master skills.
