Introduction

What do you mean school of the future?

“Our high school intern from Nazareth Prep performs better than any other college intern we've ever had. The Internship Program at Nazareth Prep is mutually beneficial for both us, the mentors, and the students. We love having our interns with us! ”

Mentor at UPMC

Nazareth Prep is an affordable, private education building strategic thinking for 21st-century success. All of our students intern one day each week from September to May at some of Pittsburgh’s premier employers. Our students complete tasks and projects typical of entry level employees at their internship, gaining transferable and desirable skills. Internship hours are generally 9:30am to 2:30pm. Students wear their school uniforms, are provided with lunch, and the school coordinates transportation. The professional setting provides the students with experiences that reinforce skills introduced in the classroom: communication, delivering quality work, collaboration, and decision making.
