In the media, in PTO meetings and in college admissions offices, there's a lot of buzz about the "gap year" option. Studies show that intentional gap time increases student success in college, and surveys find gap year alumni self-identify as more mature, confident and civically-engaged. But is this pathway right for your child?
Join gap year expert Julia Rogers, Founder of EnRoute Consulting and Board Chair of the Gap Year Association, for a presentation that will cover the benefits, challenges and opportunities surrounding the gap year option.
Julia will clarify the definition of a gap year and cover common profiles of gap year students, like the high-achiever who feels academically burnt out and the experiential learner who desires meaning and value from their college experience. She will give an overview of the myriad of programs available, describe how to plan for college deferment and share strategies for how a gap year can fit into any family's budget.
