Equipping young adults to climb to new personal heights

The Ascent Gap Year Internship provides High School graduates with a short-term, full-time, camp ministry experience. That is, students are equipped both personally and professionally in character based servant leadership. Each Ascent student will leave with a better understanding of him or herself, have clear direction of God’s purpose for their life, and an action plan to fulfill that purpose.

The Ascent Gap Year Program runs September-May.

EXTENDED Application Deadline is July 31, 2019 for the 2019-2020 Class

Why Take A Gap Year?

More and more colleges and universities are supporting students who choose to forego college in favor of a Gap Year. Studies have shown that students who take a Gap Year benefit from Higher Academic Performance, Easier Job Placement, and Increased Maturity Levels.



The choice between college and the workplace is scary. With the rising costs of college tuitions, going in without a plan can be frustrating and expensive. That's why a Gap Year is important. The Ascent Gap Year Program will give you the freedom to explore options, find your passions, and will focus on intentional education to leave you prepared for any path.

No two students learn at the same pace or style. The Ascent Program offers a variety of ways to learn both in and outside of the classroom.
