What is a “Post-Graduate” Year?

A postgraduate year is a full academic year of study generally pursued between graduation from high school and matriculation at a college or university. A postgraduate year is offered at many independent schools throughout the country and usually involves a residential experience.

How do students benefit from a postgraduate year?

The environment of a residential, college preparatory school provides the key to the success of a postgraduate year. Our facilities mirror those of a college campus, and our weekly schedule is designed to develop the skills a student-athlete needs to meet the challenges of an athletically charged college experience.

What are the chances my son earns a scholarship to a four year school?

While there is no guarantee of an offer if you enroll in a prep school, we strive to assist players in the process of obtaining offers from four year programs at all different levels of competition (FBS, FCS, D2, D3, NAIA). In some situations, an “offer” could be an academic offer from a Division 3 school. Any combination of financial aid, athletic aid, academic aid, or even PWO status will help get your son into a four year school.

How will my son get his film seen and get recruited?

Myrtle Beach Prep uses Hudl (www.hudl.com) for the creation of highlight tapes, film breakdown, film study, and recruiting. Players have access to their Hudl accounts so they can create their highlights and have a presentable professional “resume” for college coaches. Our players will have access to the connections and relationships we have built over time as a program. Many colleges contact our office during their recruiting windows.
