Gap Year

Taking a gap year is becoming more common in the United States, and can be even more common for students who graduate from high school earlier than expected.

A gap year is essentially a “break from formal education to become more immersed in another culture, to volunteer domestically or abroad, to gain experience and maturity…”.

 

Considering Your Options: A Guidebook for Investigating Gap Year Opportunities is a tool for both parents and students who are considering a gap year as an educational option.   In this guidebook readers will find information on gap year options for students under the age of 18, the pros and cons of taking a gap year, what colleges think of students who pursue a gap year and much more.

The Davidson Institute offers FREE, online access to three educational planning guidebooks focused on advocacy, early college and mentorships. With a wide variety of articles and tools, these comprehensive guides direct parents and students searching for an appropriately challenging setting through a process for effectively implementing decisions.
