Some seniors may decide that they would benefit from another year of high school. This transition year is referred to as a Post-Graduate year, or PG Year. There are many reasons why a student may choose to do a PG year. For most, this time is used for both academic and personal growth and maturity. For others, a PG year may be helpful to perfect athletic skills to increase one’s chances of making a top college team. There are only a select number of secondary schools, all private, that offer PG programs.
