for high school boy graduates
Gap Year Program

pause - it's what Selah is all about

Why take a gap year?

As high school comes to a close, the pressure to figure out what’s next gets intense. We are offering a new gap-year program for high school graduates looking for a chance to pause, reflect and discover where they are going next, why their faith matters and how they want to live in the world.

The Selah experience this inaugural year will be offered to both boys and girls and will be on T Bar M’s Lake Travis location near Austin. Selah offers young adults a new experience, time and support in a community that lives, eats, learns, and worships together.

Join others like you on a journey, to find real answers you can put into practice.

Preparing for life

T Bar M is passionate about building up the next generation of leaders. This program will be a great opportunity to cultivate new bonds and learn skills to launch them into the real world.
