Internship Program

Internships provide students with an opportunity to learn-by-doing, develop relevant skills, explore interests, and traverse New York City. 

Our student interns can be found all areas of the city, in a variety of industries.  Each semester, they complete a rigorous inquiry-based research project and give a public presentation detailing their experiences and learning.  Their experiences prepare them for the rigors of college as well as the workforce.


What happens when students engage in internships?

  • They join a community that values their individuality, interests, and talents.

  • They experience school as something relevant to the “real world.”

  • They discover what they want to do with their lives.

  • They experience opportunities for success in ways that traditional school might not provide.

  • They earn elective credits by spending two days a week interning with mentors around New York City.

  • They make positive contributions to their communities.

  • 60%


    Students can earn a maximum of 60 points for this component. To calculate their score for this component, the total number of absences will be subtracted from 60. The lowest score possible is zero, and will be assigned to any student with 60 or more absences. E.g. A student who is absent 20 days will receive 40 points because 60 points possible – 20 days absent = 40 points awarded.
