Work Based Learning/Internships
Welcome to the CTE Internships website!  Our goal is to provide you with an opportunity to experience the career that you are seeking.  An internship will allow you to experience your future career to find out what you like about the career and what you may find difficult.  You can determine if the career is really what you want to do before spending lots of time and money pursuing it.

In order to experience an internship, you need to be a senior with good grades and no citizenship U's.  An internship lasts for one semester and requires two class periods.  The internship class will earn 1 elective credit.  You will need to have transportation to your internship site.
