Why do a Gap Year program?

Age 16+ to adult learners can take our Gap Year

For many taking a year off from school or work to take advantage of opportunities to travel,  explore personal interests and passions through a framework for inner exploration and outer adventure is a year not to be missed.

Individuals may also find it beneficial to have a dedicated period of time to develop skills – professional, personal and academic.  Participants are likely to emerge from their gap year experiences with a clearer sense of purpose and direction to pursue the next phase of their lives.

What makes New Horizon’s Gap Year Program different from other programs?

At New Horizons Gap Year Program, you’ll have the chance to discover a deeper understanding of who you are, what your ideal “calling” is, and how to take your next steps in life—in education, career, health & healing and relationships, as well as finding happiness and success that will last throughout your life.


Will students need to have a passport?

Gap Year Program participants who plan to travel with us internationally will need to have a valid passport in their possession.


Will the classes that students take at Ananda College be transferrable to another college at the end of the gap year experience?

Ananda College is not an accredited educational institution.  Subsequently, we cannot accept or transfer credits from other schools.  Students will have to confer with their own institutions to determine what credit they may be able to receive for their coursework.  Some schools may give students elective credits for experiential learning and leadership programs. Syllabi and course outlines are available for review as well as curriculum and assessment materials.


When does the New Horizon’s Gap Year program begin and when does it end?
