Expectations:
Participation in the Internship Program is a privilege, and students are expected to conduct themselves professionally. Each organization offering a placement has its own policies and procedures which students are expected to follow in addition to all Beaufort Academy rules and values. Failure to follow school and/or placement organization rules may result in disciplinary action.

All students are expected to report dress professionally and according to the standards deemed appropriate by BA and their placement supervisors. Students may leave their place of work only if sent on a work-related assignment. Students must ensure their supervisors know where they are at all times. Students should have their cell phones at all times.

Students will be placed at internships by the Internship Coordinator, Mary Trask. If a student wishes to arrange his or her own internship, the student must gain approval from the Internship Coordinator no later than January 31.

Transportation:
Students are expected to provide their own transportation to internship placements.

Evaluation:
Members of the BA faculty will monitor internship placements with a visit or phone call during Interim Week. Internship supervisors will provide a written evaluation of each student at the conclusion of Interim Week. 

Successful completion of two internships is a graduation requirement—one during the 11th grade and one during the 12th grade.
