We believe that taking a meaningful break between high school and college, known as a “gap year”, can work wonders for many students. We know that there are too many students who simply are not quite ready for college. For some students, a break from school can be effective in providing “a brain reset” that will significantly improve the potential success of their college experience, only a short year later.
Here are just a few of the high-scoring outcomes as reported by gap year students:
Helped me develop as a person
Allowed me time for personal reflection
Increased my maturity
Increased my self-confidence
Helped me develop communication skills
Helped me acquire skills to be successful in my career
