What do you have questions about?
Why would my student benefit from coming to Link Year before college?
We understand your questions. Especially in a society that assumes college immediately follows after High School. But we believe that a student who participates in the Link Year will be better prepared in their academic endeavors at college, and life’s challenges. Your teen will walk into college with more maturity, purpose and direction as opposed to indecision and confusion.
Is Everyone Automatically Accepted?
No. Link Year is not the right place for everyone who applies, nor is everyone who applies right for Link Year.
Link Year is unable to take students who don't choose to participate in the Link Year. Because of this policy the Link Year has the right to deny admission to anyone who is unwilling to participate.
Do you accept students mid-year?
Unfortunately, we do not. We believe that students get the best experience by being here the whole year.
Are 17 Year Olds Accepted to Link Year?
It depends on the situation. Our staff makes a case by case decision through the application and interview process.
Are there scholarships to Link Year?
We do offer scholarships. Apply online at http://www.linkyear.com/scholarships/.
What does Link Year consist of?
The Link Year program includes a classroom setting where students will be taught by some of the world’s best, participate in mission field experiences, Bible studies, internship opportunities, retreats, and intense discipleship.
When Is The Best Time To Apply?
We accept applications year-round. To ensure that you would have a spot in our next class, we would encourage you to apply the Fall Semester of your Senior Year.
What is the age requirement for Link Year?
Students must be at least 17 years old at the start of the program, and at most 20 years old.
