Summit Gap Year


An Unplugged, Transformative Journey: Summit's 8-Month Gap Year Program 

Now open to both high school and college-aged applicants, our unique 8-month gap year program offers an opportunity to unplug from the distractions of everyday life and immerse yourself in a community of like-minded learners who want to know God, study his word, and make lifelong friendships along the way.

Academics with a Twist

Learn to defend your faith in academic and post-academic settings. Our courses are designed to deepen your understanding of your identity in Christ and how it applies to today's world. Here's a sample of what you can expect:

  • Apologetics: Learn how to confidently explain and defend your faith.

  • Modern Evangelical Perspectives on Social Issues: Tackle current social issues through a Christian perspective.

  • Biblical Worldview: Understand how to see the world through the teachings of the Bible.

  • Bible Study: Travel through the entire Bible, learning how to interpret and apply its teachings to your life.

As a gap year student, you also have access to our simultaneous enrollment partnership with Lancaster Bible College for those who want to pursue an undergraduate degree. In addition, Summit unit hours are transferrable to our partner colleges. 

Life in Community

Our close-knit school environment is designed to help you understand and embrace your identity in Christ. We are committed to fostering an environment where you can truly belong and grow with others who share your faith and passion. Vibrant student life, campus events, social outings enhance the experience and fun!

Outreach Opportunities

Step beyond the campus and get involved in meaningful outreach programs. Whether it's local community service or campus involvement, these experiences will help you grow in your faith and make a real impact in the lives of others.

Join us for 8-months this fall and experience this life-changing journey!
