Updates regarding coronavirus COVID-19

In Fall 2020, ACT is planning to deliver its normal academic offerings with very little deviation. We are preparing for an on-campus delivery, but at the same time, since the virus crisis is not over, we are also developing all the necessary protocols and mechanisms that will ensure that campus presence is safe. Recognizing that some students may not be able to physically come to campus, we are also developing the necessary infrastructure that can accommodate them with real-time electronically mediated instruction.

Gap Year at ACT

A Gap Year is a period when students, who have recently graduated from High School, take some time away from their routine to explore themselves and a new part of the world while earning college credit, meeting new people, gaining life experience and diversifying yourself from the crowd! It could be one summer, one semester or one year.  It is a time when students open their minds to new experiences in a location that facilitates exploration and cultural engagement and offers the opportunity to become actively involved in the community.  

This program is ideal for recent high school graduates who need a change of pace, a change of scenery, new motivations and horizons to reach into and explore.  This program is for someone who wants to break out of their routine and live abroad; to taste, touch, smell and live the experience.
