Did You Know...

The gap year is the first year between completing high school and starting college or university. Many students use this time to prepare for the following year and look for a job, a place to live or explore other opportunities, like volunteering or go traveling. Some people worry that if you take a year off from school you won't go back. However there are many opportunities that can present themselves when one is in a gap year and so it's also important to be open to the unknown.
