Academies seniors can apply for an Academic Internship, a type of “Work-Based Learning Experience Program” for high school scholars who have completed extensive school-based preparation relating to an identified area of career and academic interest. To participate in an Academic Internship, a scholar must be invited by a mentor/business. The internship can vary in length, may be paid or non-paid, and could lead to course credit if all criteria are met. Academies scholars who complete at least 400 hours of a work-based learning experience program will attain 2 hours of high school credit. The Academic Internship will take place at the training site of the mentor and will be a component of a scholar’s schedule either during the regular school day, after school hours, or during the summer, and may be one semester, one or more trimesters, or a year long experience.
