A core belief at Semester Off is that each of our students has the inner potential to succeed given the right environment.  For some, this means a more compassionate and empathic learning milieu to improve confidence and self-esteem.  For others, this means a more structured setting where expectations are clear and high standards of personal and academic conduct are instilled.  For all of our students, we provide a respectful, nurturing space for learning and self-reflection and create a social latticework within which our students develop a sense of belonging and connection.
