For our seniors, the overarching goal of InterMission is to prepare our oldest students to soon fulfill the final words of our mission statement, we expect our graduates to shape a changing world.
Our students are eager to see how our Ancients and their work model the call of the school’s mission. Our hope is that students emerge from the experience with a keen awareness of themselves as learners and as positive agents of change. Students are empowered to reflect upon the people they are and the people they will become.
As part of their InterMission experience, students will spend time engaged in job shadows and internships with professionals and thought leaders across all industries. Our Ancients provide a rich palette of careers and their connection with our seniors is invaluable as they model the words of our mission statement.
Program objectives for seniors students include:
➤ Being architects of their own experiences as they investigate an essential question through their job shadow or internship
➤ Engaging in meaningful work with our Ancients as role models and mentors
➤ Learning to lead with confidence and integrity to make impactful change
➤ Identifying how their identities shape college and career paths
➤ Building and developing personal and community networks
