Intern Program:


Each spring, Middle and High School students are given a week to complete 20-30 hours of working experience through an internship program.


The goal of our internship program is to provide some real life opportunities and experiences that match the academic and personal interests of each individual student. Internships are an important way for our students to meet and interact with adults in a professional setting. Some of the benefits of students internships are developing 21st century skills and marketability, increasing self-confidence, building a professional network, and enhancing future employment opportunities.


In High School, students continue to refine and enhance their resumes, which will be important for college and beyond.
