Gap Year: A "Gap Year" is a period between completing high school and beginning college. This time can either be a semester or a full year away from traditional classroom studies.  Gap years come in all shapes and sizes.  They include participating in organized Gap year programs abroad or domestically, working in a field of interest, civil service in the military or a nation service organization, pursuing arts or athletics, and traveling the world as a tourist.

When it comes to choosing a gap year program, there are so many options: you can choose pre-made gap year programs, combine short-term programs, or make your own custom experience at home or abroad (or both).
