How does Verto help me?
As a student in the Verto Program, you get two benefits. First, you’re traveling the world and giving back. It looks great as part of your ‘college resume’ to future employers or graduate school admissions teams. You also earn college credit, reducing the number of years you need to attend in order to get a Bachelors degree.
Frequently Asked Questions by Parents
Does Verto teach my child, or is it a semester/year-long party?
Unlike a less structured, traditional gap year program where your child takes off for a year of travel and fun, Verto is specifically designed to help your child learn while having life-changing experiences. Ideally, it is both fun and educational.
How much does the Verto Program cost?
The cost of the Verto Program can be found on the Requirements & Cost page. We also have financial resources available to help students and families make Verto part of their college experience.
