Carpe Diem Education redefines what it means to embark on an impactful Gap Year abroad, by upholding:

Community: it permeates every part of their culture—from our core groups on semester to our extended Carpe Diem family, they make it a priority to support and engage with all layers of community.

Small groups: they cap our program groups to 10-12 students for a reason: they care about our students’ well-being. Two Overseas Educators lead each small group in order to provide individualized mentorship and ensure safety.

Accessibility: their affordable programs and substantial scholarships allow them to stand behind their commitment to accessible and inclusive Gap Year experiences.

Leadership: as one of the first organizations to be accredited by the Gap Year Association in 2014, they continue to spearhead industry-wide best practices in field leadership, safety standards, and organizational integrity.
