gap year

Investing in the life-changing GAP YEAR might not be a concept you’re familiar with, but this popular international tradition has been proven successful in studies by renowned universities like Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. In addition to that Time Magazine, USA Today, The Today Show and Education.com all report that taking a gap year between high school and college can be a key to a successful future. All report that students who spend their first year post high school experiencing some aspect of real life eventually are more productive in their adult career and family endeavors.

A gap year is an opportunity to discover who you are. A chance to find out what motivates you and what you are passionate about. A gap year gives you the ability to gain vision for your life and the understanding on how to see that vision through. You meet new people, try new things, go new places, and have new experiences. Because Jesus Christ is the central point of all we do at ECMC, you will experience a spiritual and leadership transformation that will set you on a trajectory for a future with purpose.

Around 75% (2.1 Million) of traditional college students change their majors between the first and third year. (Source: New York Times) That is a lot of time and a money that goes down the drain! So even if you only join us for the first transformational year, it could be one of the wisest decisions of your entire lifetime.
