Post-Graduate Program

A Dynamic and Supportive Program Helping High School Students Transition to College and Beyond

As the oldest school in the country for students with language-based learning differences, The Gow School is pleased to introduce our Post-Graduate Gap Year Program. Our program is intentionally designed for students who are preparing to go to college. Guided by Gow's expert faculty, post graduate students will experience the academics of college while enjoying the full support that our school offers.

Remediating learning differences, enhancing opportunities, and curating credentialed experiences

In a supportive environment, Gow’s Post-Graduate Program offers a carefully designed curriculum with support and structure to guide every boarding and day student. We welcome students with language-based learning differences, including dyslexia, dyscalculia, auditory processing disorder, and others.

With a highly trained and committed staff, we prioritize personalized instruction, helping students gain the confidence to transition to college and beyond. Gow has a dedicated Post-Graduate faculty team. Each student receives an advisor who will support them through classes at area colleges and their classes at Gow.

Beyond the classroom, Gow is about community. Fine arts, fitness, and free time are available in students' daily schedules. We invite all prospective students to join us on campus for a tour and to learn more.
