Work-Based Learning and College Preparation

Work-Based Learning and College Exploration combines academic study of college and workplace skills with a 16-week work-based learning experience. During Quarter 1, students conduct research, write resumes and engage in interviews to secure an internship placement for the second and third quarters. During their internships, students develop important workplace competencies while exploring particular career interests. Quarter 4 focuses on reflection of learning and essay writing for college applications. English language learners participating in the internship program have the opportunity to apply English language skills and academic knowledge to real-world situations and purposes that prepare them for life beyond high school in post-secondary institutions and professional work environments.
