Career Planning, Internship & Project-Based Learning
Education at Catholic Memorial High School doesn't stop in the classroom. CMH gives students hands-on experience during their senior year in internship placements in the area of business, computer science and engineering with local companies. Students are given projects, work on teams alongside full-time employees and experience a real world career environment while still in high school.
Catholic Memorial High School Internship Programs
CMH students will have the opportunity to take advantage of amazing business partnerships in a variety of subject areas. During junior and senior years, students will be given both project-based experience within their courses and collaborations with businesses and internship opportunities outside of the classroom during the school year and summer months. These collaborations provide real-world experience for students and a jump start into analyzing their direction for future careers.
