Postgraduate Year Programs
A postgraduate or PG year is a great idea for students who want to take a gap year but concentrate on academics and/or sports skills. Many independent secondary schools offer PG years that accept students graduating from high school who like the idea of living on a campus but aren't quite ready for college life. These programs offer strong academics and sports as well as structure and supervision in tight-knit school communities. PG years are offered at both co-ed and single-sex schools and in urban, suburban and rural settings. Many offer strong sports programs or outdoor activities and adventures.
