Are you unsure where to go after high school?

Many students find themselves burnt-out, overwhelmed, and disconnected after completing the rigors of high school and college applications. The Vanguard Gap Year offers you a bridge between high school and college, while you learn new skills and experience the world. Following the liberal arts tradition, Vanguard develops the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. This community-based year of hands-on education and leadership development will prepare you for the challenges of college and beyond.

Any questions about Vanguard or if you are interested in learning more about gap year programs, please contact our gap year Program Manager,  Charlie Goeke, by email or call him at 715-479-7474 ext. 231.
