The professional internship program is designed to give Seniors the chance to explore careers of interest to them prior to leaving high school and entering the career or pursuing post secondary education in the area.  The placement will help students understand the dynamics of the career and get first hand experience with the job requirements.  The program gives students the chance to learn from and network with professionals in the field during part of the MVHS school day.  Students are released early from school to complete the internship hours and will receive 1 full course credit at the end of the semester.  Interns will work with mentors in their career fields for 8-10 hours per week.  Placement in an internship provides the opportunity for the students to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses and acquire information to make wise academic and employment decisions. 

Types of Internships

The possibilities are endless.  Because most businesses do not already have high school internship programs in place, we get to contact any and all businesses to create internship opportunities.  Some examples of career areas that past students have interned in are as follows:

  • Interior Design
  • Law Enforcement
  • Engineering
  • Nursing
  • Physical Therapy
  • Athletic Training
  • The list goes on and on!
