Job Shadow, Internship, and Work-Based Learning experiences provide students an opportunity to build career awareness while earning high school credit for the experience. Students are screened prior to approval for these experiences.
Job Shadowing is available to students in grades 10 through 12. Students are excused from school for a half-day or full-day job-shadow experience with a mentor in a career field of interest.
Internships are available for credit during the school day for 11th and 12th graders. Under the supervision of mentors, students may intern for one or more terms in multiple career fields or areas of specialty.
Work-Based Learning is available to 12th grade students who may work one or more terms with a community-based employer/mentor to learn occupational skills during the school day.
In addition to career exploration and preparation, the on-campus Work Seminar course includes foundational knowledge and work-readiness skills with a goal of developing critical thinking, decision-making and problem solving abilities. Aptitude and personality analyses are incorporated, along with safety, responsibility, resume and interview preparation.
