• Internships are a great way to gain valuable work experience and insight to a career.  Students can complete an internship experience on their own (without school supervision/oversight) or if they want to earn 1 regular or honors credit for the internship, they can work through the career development coordinator to complete the necessary paperwork and assignments throughout the semester. 

    Students must secure their own internship site.  Some locations where students have completed internships are City of Raleigh, North Ridge Country Club, Curtis Media Group, Baileywick YMCA, Douglas Elementary, NC Department of Public Instruction, NC Medical Society, Chesapeake Homes, Fonville Morrisey, & Homes by Dickerson.

    Internship Eligibility

    • Students must have begun 11th or 12th grade and be in good academic standing.
    • Students must determine their internship interest area and seek out a business who may be willing to allow the student to complete the internship (check with family friends, etc. for contacts with companies that may consider allowing a student to intern).
    • Students must have completed at least 2 CTE courses, with at least one class being a completer class (usually a level II class).
    • Students must have taken classes in the area they wish to intern in, if offered at Sanderson.
