Is a gap right for you?
Looking for an adventure before college?
You know you’ll eventually go to college—you’ve got the grades and tests scores—but first you want to take a break and do something just for you: explore the world, connect with other cultures, and maybe even discover your true path in life.
Accepted to a good school—but want to defer?
You know your career path and have been accepted at exactly the right school to get you there. It’s all part of the plan to defer enrollment for a year and take a well-deserved break—to live life and see more of the world. It’s important, though, that your gap experience enhance your future plans.
Hoping to get into the school of your dreams?
You got good grades and test scores, but you didn’t get into a college that truly excites you. Rather than settle for your safety school, you’d like to take a year off, build your resume with several amazing global experiences, and then reapply to the school of your dreams next year.
Need to take a break from college for a year?
You’ve given college a try and discovered you’re just not ready for it yet. So it’s time to reassess your personal goals and career plans. You think an amazing gap year will rekindle your love of learning and show you the pathway forward to a better university experience.
Still figuring out the whole college thing?
Traditional classroom learning has always been a challenge for you, and applying to colleges this year might be a stretch. You believe a year of global experiences and hands-on learning is just what you need to craft a compelling college application, choose exactly the right schools, and then apply next year.
