SPRING 2014


High School Seniors have heard from colleges and now it is “Go” time. Perhaps you are one of those hopeful seniors on a waiting list, or one who was not accepted to your top choice,or one who has even started to wonder what your purpose will be at college this fall.

If any of these thoughts are running across your mind right now, why not consider taking a gap semester or year? Contact your college or check out the American Gap Association website to see if your college supports a deferment. It is not too late to contact Marion Taylor of Taylor The Gap to help design an exciting, life-changing gap semester or year.

We know that gap year students arrive at college more mature and focused on taking charge of their own learning. Taking time out to travel, to become fluent in a language, to make a difference in a community, or to participate in a social justice program creates a more vital, interesting, engaged student. Rather than switching majors two or three times at significant expense, students should take advantage of being 18 and anchorless! There is no job, no mortgage, no children, no school work, no relationship to tie you down. Time out offers an opportunity to gain a broader perspective of humanity, while developing lifelong friendships and acquiring new skills. A gap year provides the time to reflect and process experiences as they are happening.

Many parents are concerned about the perceived cost of a gap year. However, there is a broad spectrum ranging from work-for-pay and sponsored projects, to college credit options, to higher priced programs involving extensive global travel, lower instructor/student ratio, and integrated educational curriculums. Cost can be a factor, but tuition discounts, financial scholarships, grant resources, and "crowd-funding" through social media, now sets the gap year option within reach of young men and women from all economic backgrounds. It is a powerful opportunity for students to invest in themselves.
