Internships Overview

Winterim Internships add to the high school experience by providing Junior and Senior students with the opportunity to make connections between what they have learned in their classes and their work in the professional world. These real, working-life experiences can assist students in making college and career choices and provide the potential to gain an additional adult mentor in their field of interest. 

For example, students may realize that God is calling them to a career in the same field where they interned. They could also realize that their gifts do not align with this career. Either way, an internship is a valuable tool in providing a better understanding of living out one’s faith in the workplace.

Juniors and Seniors may apply to do a Winterim Internship. It is the student’s responsibility to line up the internship, and students are encouraged to begin this as early as the previous spring.   Internship Applications are due in the fall of the school year.
