The term "Gap Year" comes from the British and is loosely defined as the year that a high school graduate takes off before entering college or university. Historically this has not been part of the American culture as most often students go directly from high school on to further education. However, this trend is changing and many high school graduates are deciding to take some time between this major transition to work, travel, and, in many cases, study abroad. Although the main office of "Gap-Year.com" is located in England, the company is international in aspect and serves clients from around the world.
