Not yet ready for college, but ‘ready to get ready’, students need a different kind of education. Our senior year is designed to accomplish many of the things that a preparatory ‘Gap Year’ has come to provide for students—adult skill-building, deeper mentoring, and transitioning to responsibility—all while fulfilling the remaining academic requirements of high school.

We have a unique opportunity in the final year that students are living at home, to prepare them for life. A key element of that is disrupting the routine of high school and guiding them through a wider range of experiences and challenges, supported by healthy mentoring relationships developed over the years of high school.

Our senior year will include experiences such as taking seminar college classes and learning to succeed in college lecture-based classes with multiple-choice exams, wrestling with wider cultural and social experiences present on college campuses, and attempting to take on even more adult responsibilities in our communities.
