A Gap Year is a period when students, who have recently graduated from High School, take some time away from their routine to explore themselves and a new part of the world while earning college credit, meeting new people, gaining life experience and diversifying yourself from the crowd! It could be one summer, one semester or one year. It is a time when students open their minds to new experiences in a location that facilitates exploration and cultural engagement and offers the opportunity to become actively involved in the community.
This program is ideal for recent high school graduates who need a change of pace, a change of scenery, new motivations and horizons to reach into and explore. This program is for someone who wants to break out of their routine and live abroad; to taste, touch, smell and live the experience.
