The Gap Year Program That Leaves No Gap

This week the blog is sponsored by Boyce College, but I want to begin it with a personal note. When my children began to consider their options for college, Aileen and I wanted them to know we would support them in whatever program and whatever college they chose. But we also insisted that before they began their studies, they get a grounding in the Christian worldview. It was for that reason that we took them to Boyce College’s Preview Day where they would be introduced to the Worldview Intensive Year, a gap-year program meant to equip them for further studies and the rest of life. That’s the subject of this post.

Your student’s college plans may have changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it can be difficult to know what to do this fall. Many families are considering the idea of taking a “gap-year” between high school graduation and college entrance. However, taking a year-off can delay accomplishing educational, career, and ministry goals.

Boyce College, the undergraduate school of Southern Seminary, offers a tremendous opportunity for families considering a gap-year. Beginning this fall, Boyce College is offering The Worldview Intensive Year. This one-year program provides first-time college students with a rigorous foundation in biblical worldview studies, as they prepare for further education at Boyce College or another institution.

Students in the worldview intensive can expect to receive the same theological training and preparation Boyce College offers to those in its baccalaureate degree programs. The curriculum is comprised of 32 hours in subjects such as Apologetics, Introduction to Ethics, World History, and others which are fully recognized by Boyce College and transferable to other accredited colleges and universities.

This program, led by the trusted faculty at Boyce College, provides the time needed to make a wise decision about the future, equips your student with a biblical worldview, and prepares them for college success.

The program is offered to students who desire residential studies or those who desire an on-line learning experience. To learn more about this program, visit:

    Can I confess something to you? There’s one thing Aileen does that really bugs me. We will be talking together and enjoying one another’s company. But then, as we chat, I’ll hear the telltale buzz of her phone. And I can tell that I’ve lost her. I can see it in the look on her…
