I recently spoke with Jennifer Gaworski, Associate Director of Admission at Bridgton Academy about the benefits of taking an extra year before college. This practice is not altogether uncommon in the northeastern part of the US, where many students make a decision to take an extra year of secondary school to continue to develop themselves academically before entering college.
Bridgton Academy, located in rural Maine, is an all-men’s, dedicated PG (or “post graduate”) program. Many of the boys who attend are also athletes who aspire to play at a high level in college.
In this short video, Ms. Gaworski gives a bit more information about the benefits of doing a PG year before college.
