Juniors Invited to Apply Now for HHS Internship Program

November 20, 2023

Did you know that Huntington High School offers credit-bearing internships for seniors? The student internship program is designed to provide seniors with opportunities that go beyond the traditional academic classroom. Participants are provided with a challenging real-world environment, allowing them to experience all of the ins and outs of an assortment of career fields.

“During the year, students will pursue a career and develop a creative project,” according to a program overview listed in the high school curriculum guide. “ Participants will earn one academic credit for their year-long placement. Students are required to work under the supervision of their mentor and to maintain a detailed journal reflecting on completed activities and knowledge gained from their experiences.”

Students may choose to intern with a high school teacher or other professional in the building or they can engage in an internship outside of the school district to gain insight into a specific field they might be interested in.

The in-school internship: A student will intern with a teacher/mentor inside Huntington High School and will work with that individual in the classroom. This is appropriate for students wishing to pursue a teaching career or those interested in a particular field of study in which a teacher/mentor possesses an expertise.

The out-of-school internship: A student will intern outside of the school in an area or field of interest. Internships might include working within a retail establishment; with a professional such as a doctor, architect, lawyer, in a non-profit organization, etc.

The internship program is available to seniors, who earn one academic credit following completion of their respective internship. Interested juniors who would like to apply for a senior internship must complete an application by Friday, January 5. The online application can be found here: Online Internship Application

Applications are subject to final approval by two internship faculty advisors. Applicants that are approved will enter into a lottery system due to the limited number of internships available.  A lottery drawing will be held on February 2, 2024 at 2:20 p.m. in the School Heritage Museum-Room 140. All prospective interns are encouraged to attend.
