Post-Graduate Gap Year
King’s Academy welcomes post-graduate students through our Arabic Year program every year. PG students are members of the senior class and have access to all the programs and resources of our student body. The post-graduate program through Arabic Year allows PG students a year to mature, grow and sharpen their skills before entering college. Learning Arabic and being immersed in a different culture broadens their language and cultural horizons.
King’s Academy has served our PG students well. A good example is Josh Claxton, who spent a gap year at King's after graduating from the Lawrenceville School. Josh went on to study at Middlebury College after his PG year at King’s.
My classes and travels were informative, but it was those informal interactions with people of different backgrounds that made the experience transformative.
