Internships

  • An internship is an experience in which a high school student learns by taking on a responsible role as a worker in a company or organization and then reflects on what happened while 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 for juniors and seniors and must be at least 135 hours.  Students will earn an honors credit (1) for the internship.
