YEAR ON BENEFITS

Giving students the tools to succeed 

Our experiences are based on the gap year model, where students take time away from campus to learn more about themselves, the world around them, and how they can take full advantage of their undergraduate education.

Lower transfer rates

Students who took a gap year between high school and post-secondary education had a lower transfer rate.

Higher graduation rate

Compared to national averages, those who took a gap year had lower average time to graduation (4 years or less, compared nationally to only 59% graduating within 6 years).

Higher performing students

83% of students who take a gap year report a GPA of 3.0 and above.

"In an economy where jobs are increasingly threatened by automation, the future belongs to those graduates who possess “agency”—who act with purpose and determination to drive themselves across a career map without clearly marked roads."

- Hart Research Associates, 2015

Why Year On?

Year On gives students the tools they need to succeed

While gap years are becoming increasingly recognized as a beneficial endeavor for many incoming freshmen, many gap year programs focus on a specific area of development, such as programming, outdoor education or service learning.

Our Year On experience provides a curriculum that combines travel, exploration and experiential learning to give students the foundation they need to be more prepared for college. Students come away from our program with foundational life skills, a toolkit of effective work habits and the clarity and confidence they need to be successful in college—and life.
