"Focused on skill acquisition and paid employment."
It was easy for us to be supportive of Nathan's gap year plan because it focused on skill acquisition and paid employment.
He obtained his Wilderness EMT during the first 3rd of the year and spent the remainder gainfully employed as a high school wrestling coach and outdoor educator.
We strongly believe the life skills, independence, maturity, and pride in accomplishment, gained during his gap year will translate into better performance in college.
