Discover Year

Do you feel overwhelmed or unsure when you think about your next steps after high school? Do you want to take time to explore your interests, develop new skills, and gain valuable work, travel and volunteer experience before pursuing post-secondary studies?

Discover Year is a one-year structured and purposeful gap year program that helps young adults better understand what they want in life, and build the skills they need to go out and get it.

Throughout their Discover Year, our students develop stronger self-awareness, confidence, communication skills, and resilience to thrive in school, work and life. They achieve these results through ongoing self-exploration, coaching and mentorship, life- and job-skills workshops, and valuable work and travel experience.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for Discover Year. I learned so much throughout the year, especially about myself. There was so much reflection time. I have come to realize that life is an experience and I want to live it to the fullest. It’s not about getting from ‘point A to point B’ — life is side to side and upside down.”
