Welcome to the Franklin Regional Senior Internship Program!
The Franklin Regional High School Senior Internship Program allows college-bound seniors to gain realistic views of their career choices, develop job skills, and interact with adults in a professional setting.
Franklin Regional High School sends over 90% of the graduating seniors on to a post secondary school. However, education costs continue to rise, and the national average for college graduation is 50%. For students who stay in college, thirty percent graduate in five years instead of four. The Senior Internship program was created with these statistics in mind. As a result, our senior interns have the opportunity to navigate the areas of interest to them while gaining valuable real world experiences.
The ultimate goal of a senior internship will be met it the seniors affirm their career plans or explore new career directions.
