Workplace Experience

Charleston High School offers many opportunities for students to learn college and/or career-ready skills within the community. Our Internship program is expanding and it is our hope that every CHS student, prior to graduating, will have gained valuable work experience.

The chart below provides an overview of the program. Students are encouraged to discuss their future course schedules with their guidance counselor prior to applying.

If your business is interested in hosting a student intern please contact our CTE Specialist, Angie Niebrugge, at (217) 639-5118 or send a message.
