Career Research and Internship Program
The career research and internship program is designed to connect students with a range of first hand experiences in diverse career fields and equip students with the life and leadership skills they will need to succeed in their future educational and career pursuits.
Students in the 9th and 10th grades will be afforded shadowing opportunities each month to visit and explore a wide range of careers and begin to understand first hand what those careers are all about. By their 11th and 12th grade years, students are able to apply for internships in a field of special interest to them, and they will work once a week as interns in that field.
Over the course of our 4 year program, students will receive instruction in writing a resume, developing a budget, communicating effectively by phone and email, and dressing professionally for success.
