Recommended by Guidance Counselor

The Internship Program/ Senior Experience is an interactive learning partnership through which students increase, in depth and scope, their knowledge and abilities in a select area of study under the guidance of the internship coordinator, a job coach as well as a mentor on their internship site.

The success of each student is based on that individual actively participating in an area of interest that they wish to pursue as a possible career post high school.  Different mentors approach this in different ways. Some mentors prepare a special project specifically designed for the student to develop his/her skills. Others bring the student into an ongoing project that may require the student to either work in collaboration with other colleagues or to work independently on one aspect of the project, which the student is capable of undertaking with minimal supervision. In general, internships in the business community include the intern’s participation in professionally related activities. The internship may be in any discipline or involve any profession; however, it is mandatory that the student be an active participant in activities related to the field of study. Students are placed on non-paid internships in the community for 2-3 periods a day. These internships match the student’s career plan that is developed in the course component. Exploration of postsecondary colleges and training programs are also explored to assure a successful transition from High School to the Adult Community.
