Gap Year Info

Enrollment deferrals, commonly referred to as gap years, give students the opportunity to participate in a program, activity, or experience designed to provide enrichment outside of the classroom. While we try to honor all requests for gap years that fit within our guidelines, not all requests are granted.

Visit our Gap Year Information page to learn more.
