Career Academy Internships

Career Academy Internships

Students participating in Career Academies receive focused instruction and experience in a chosen career field. Immersion in the subject area, through specialized coursework and hands-on experiences, enables the student to explore the field before starting college or a career, while gaining practical skills and contacts that can prove invaluable to future success.

An internship with a professional in the chosen field is an integral element of the career immersion experience. During the internship, the student develops original research, a creative production, or a community-benefit project.
