• Internship Overview


    Student Internships serve as an experience in which a high school student learns by taking on a repsonsible role as a worker in a company or organization and then reflects on what happened while the student was in the workplace.  The Internship Program is a supplement to formal classroom instruction.  Its intent is to significantly add to the vitality of the instructional program and to impact the courses that a student has taken or will take.  Internships are recommended for juniors and seniors and must consist of at least 135 hours.  Students will earn a credit for the internship on their transcript.  This credit will be Pass/Fail credit, and will not factor into the student's GPA. 

    Students have the option to complete internships that are Career and Technical Education (CTE)-based and Non-CTE based. Students who are interested in CTE Internships should contact Vickie Ward (vward@wcpss.net). If interested in non-CTE internships, students should contact their counselor who will put you in contact with one of the internship coordinators. Additional information about the Non-CTE Internship can be found below.
