D155 Career Internship Program

​The purpose​ of the Career Internship Program is to provide students the opportunity to explore and evaluate a career path before they make the educational and financial commitment.

​​District 155 offers this course, at Crystal Lake Central, Crystal Lake South, and Prairie Ridge High Schools. Students enrolled in the program will have nine weeks of instruction, then participate in the six week on-site experience.

Along the way, we ​hope they will develop essential workplace skills, habits, and attitudes and gain valuable experiences that are just not available in the high school classroom.
