The Complete Guide to the Gap Year
Kristin White's book, The Complete Guide to the Gap Year, offers a comprehensive look at an intermediary step, such as a gap year or post-graduate year, for students graduating from high school who are not quite ready to go to college. She provides valuable advice as to how to go about organizing this experience, as well as financing it. Her listing of a broad variety of programs is extremely helpful to the reader. We would advise, as always, that students and parents do their own independent research to be sure that a particular program will fit the students' needs. But Kristen White's book is an excellent starting point as you begin your search for the right next step.
