Considering a Gap Year?

Gap years are becoming increasingly popular among high school seniors. Many students come to recognize that they may not be adequately prepared for the academic, athletic, or social pressures of college. Others opt for a gap year for the opportunity to perform service projects, pursue a particular passion, or improve in an area of concentration before attending college. If you are considering delaying your college application or attendance, consider The Hun School’s Postgraduate Program.
