WHAT IS A POST "GRAD" YEAR? 

A post-graduate, or “PG year” as it is often called, is a full academic year of study generally pursued between graduation from high school and matriculation at a college or university. A PG year is offered at many independent schools throughout the country and usually involves a residential experience. Here at Liberty Prep the "Post Grad Year" is generally one semester, however if we deem fit a student athlete can stay for up to four semesters to complete their studies before transferring. 

WHAT IS A PG YEAR BENEFICAL FOR?

Anyone who wants to play college football. Reasons for pursuing a postgraduate program are almost as varied as the interests, personalities, and ability range of any broad cross-section of college bound students. But more specifically why a postgraduate football program?

  • Student who may need another semester/year after high school to develop basic academic skills.  A student-athlete may have put more emphasis on athletics and less on studies in high school.  

  • Students who may need another semester/year of development on the field.

  • Students who need another semester/year of exposure and/or film.

  • Students who may have played out of position.

  • Students who may have suffered an injury during their high school career.

  • Students may find themselves with college choices which no longer match their needs, but are beyond the point at which it is feasible to begin a new college search and still meet deadlines: rather than commit to an inappropriate college choice, such students might use the postgraduate semester/year as a second chance at the college admission/recruiting process.

 

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY COLLEGE EILIGBILTY ?

No eligibility is used while at Liberty Prep. Our student-athletes do not enroll in a full time load of college courses. Therefore, their collegiate eligibility clock does not start.

HOW DO COLLEGE VIEWS  PLAYERS FROM POST  GRADUATE PROGRAMS?

College programs appreciate any program that prepares student athletes for the riggers of playing college football at a four year institution and places them in a better position to be successful. Hundreds of colleges across the nation enroll students each year from postgraduate semester/year programs and have done so for a long time; the concept of a post graduate, or “PG,” semester/year between high school and college is not new.

WHAT ARE MY CHANCES OF RECIEVING A SCHOLARSHIP OFFER TO A FOUR SCHOOL?

There is no guarantee that a player will get a scholarship offer while at LPSA. What we will guarantee is that any player who wants to pursue playing at a four year school will have the chance to. We will work with programs from all levels FBS, FCS, D2, D3, NAIA.
