THEY CAN! Since 1999, Bitney College Prep has been inspiring students to be ready for life and relevant to the world. We believe collaborative relationships with local businesses, public agencies, non-profits groups and individuals help provide students with profound curiosity, and inspire both a love of learning, and a more clear sense of self-direction.
New for Fall 2016: in a Big Picture Learning model, students intern for one full school day each week. Open for 30 students. Find out more!
True education takes place out in the world as much as in the classroom, so we encourage our students to see beyond “four walls and a white board.”
Whether working for wages, taking classes at college or online, volunteering in the community, or learning career-specific skills with working professionals, our students benefit from expanded access to real-world experiences.
If you want more information, or if you are a Bitney student interested in signing up for an internship, please check out the following links. We’d love to put you to work!
