Teacher with students in the classroom

Business Practicum Program

The Resurrection College Prep High School Practicum Program is an educational experience where students work with mentors in professional settings or virtually to explore career possibilities. 

This program provides juniors and seniors with unique, hands-on work experience which enables them to better understand the practical and personal skills required in careers that interest them. The classroom component extends and deepens students’ field experiences through personal interest assessments and reflection papers. Students obtain a better understanding of their own skills and interests as they prepare for college selection and career success.
