This program is available to seniors who are looking for “real-world” work experience their senior year. The internship program will integrate students’ academic and work-based learning experiences.  Extended and focused work-based learning opportunities expose students to the realities and expectations of the workplace.  Classroom assignment and individual meetings with Career Education Director will equip students with pre-employment skills, enhance connections between school and careers, and promote personal growth and development.


Length of Program:  Full year with internship at the same location throughout.

Requirements:  Students must complete 15 hours of work weekly at a career-focused job site, have quarterly meetings with the Career Education Director, be on track for graduation, and enroll in a minimum of 4 credits, to include English, Economics, and any other classes required for a student to be eligible for graduation.  Complete all requirements for Senior Portfolio.

Credit: Successful completion of each semester in the program will result in 1 credit for the Career Education Program, in addition to credits earned for their regular ed classes.

Application:  Students interested in the program should apply prior to the start of their junior year.  Junior year classes will reflect the senior year participation in the Career Education Program.  The career area of interest will also be indicated at this point so that, ideally, all internships will be ready by the beginning of 12th grade.
