Internships

  • Old Mill High School Signature strives to provide meaningful coursework, professional experiences, and unique learning opportunities for all students. Internships are central to giving students rewarding and relevant workforce experiences. Each high school in Anne Arundel County Public Schools has an Internship Coordinator who works with students, professionals, and the Centers for Applied Technology in order to place and monitor students while in their internships.

    Opportunities exist for a variety of internships with community business partners, both during the school year and over the summer.  These include internships with the Maryland State Senate and Landmarks Marketing, to just name a few.  Check out   http://aacpsstudentinternships.org/  for a list of opportunities, student requirements, and internship management.
