Why a Gap Year?

Research has shown when students explore opportunities outside a traditional educational setting and within a secure and structured environment, the life skills learned through the EXPERIENCE develops independent decision making and confidence.

These experiential learning opportunities can ignite a passion or reinforce a chosen path. Whether you are a high achieving senior who has been accepted to the college of your choice, a student with learning differences or a student tired of the traditional academic challenges and eager to explore the world before college, a Gap Year can offer you an opportunity to develop:

  • an individualized focus in an area of interest
  • an engagement with others through global awareness
  • leadership and communication skills
