ARCC Gap Semester Programs offer an educational and cultural bridge between high school and college. They are an opportunity to live, work, learn, and explore in some of the greatest classrooms on earth. Designed with a rich educational fabric complementing each and every location, our programs highlight regional issues that are directly linked to global challenges.
On an ARCC Gap Semester we go behind the scenes to meet with local experts, scholars and community leaders to research and study issues and their impact on the communities we visit. Students immerse into the culture through homestays, service work, teaching, and exchange.
An ARCC Gap Semester is life changing. It is an opportunity to reach out and experience both life and the world from a different perspective.
ARCC offers semesters in Africa, Asia, India & Nepal, and Latin America. Each program is an educational semester in a small group setting with a defined curriculum and leadership development component.
