THE POST GRADUATE PROGRAM at NYA The Program The post graduate program at NYA is open to local high school graduates who would benefit from an additional year of study before college. The NYA post graduate program gives students the opportunity to mature academically in a structured, supportive environment. A year at NYA provides an added foundation necessary for a successful transition to college. At North Yarmouth Academy, learning happens in the classroom, on the fields, and in the rehearsal halls. Students benefit from small class sizes, a culture of honesty and integrity, and one-on-one mentoring from their teachers. NYA students graduate with a strong foundation in writing, critical thinking, and confident self-expression. NYA graduates adjust easily to the demands and freedom that college brings, allowing them to focus on discovering their paths in life.

Post graduate students may also pursue an independent study in an area of great interest either as a selfdesigned course or online through NYA’s membership in the Hybrid Learning Consortium. This allows the student to engage in a particular passion. In addition, there are many activities a post graduate student may participate in such as investment club, chess club, robotics, volunteering and more.

COLLEGE COUNSELING Post graduate students immediately begin one-on-one meetings with an NYA college counselor to identify colleges that meet the student’s criteria. Upon finding the right fit, the college counselor will help work through the college application process step-bystep. 85% of the Class of 2017 was admitted to one or more of their top three colleges. One hunderd percent of NYA students were accepted to a four-year college. A small number of graduates choose to take a GAP year before attending college.
