    The New Horizons Gap Year Program, offered by Ananda College, is especially designed to encourage self-discovery and inner growth. Classes in Finding your Calling; Meditation; and World Cultures, Spirituality and Consciousness are a few of the courses that help students explore their goals, motivations, and talents.

    Ananda's purpose is to extend the scope of modern education beyond the common preoccupation with facts and knowledge of external conditions. We commit ourselves to cultivating the inner sense of knowing that is at the core of all true spiritual traditions. In becoming a student in the New Horizons Gap Year Program, you will enter an environment created to help you explore and deepen your own experience of inner truth. This foundation of inner truth and self-knowing provides the basis for constructing a life that can bring lasting fulfillment and meaning.

    Ananda provides personalized learning for the mind. Ananda College creates a learning environment that will enhance your strengths and bolster any areas of weakness, allowing you to more fully realize your potential for learning and for living. 

    An opportunity to transform your community. You will be able to discover a deep purpose to life by sharing what you have learned and experienced with others. The service-learning component of our program held in-person on campus offers direct application of the theories you study, an opportunity to serve and transform the larger community. You will have the option of choosing your area of service from possibilities such as sustainability projects, intentional community projects, working with animals, or assisting those in need.
