This course allows students to complete a non-paid internship experience in a career field that is of interest to them. Students are required to complete 54 hours at their internship and 27 hours of classroom instruction. Students can explore such careers as accounting, biology, criminal justice, child care, engineering, health care, journalism, law, medicine and teaching. This program gives students a firsthand opportunity to learn about a particular career. Students gain insight into the skills and educational requirements of that career prior to college. Students planning to enroll need to make a commitment of four to five hours a week to meet their internship hours obligation. In addition, students will also have one class meeting a week to meet the 27 hours of classroom instruction. CEIP is a 1/2 unit elective course open to all students in grade 12. Students who choose to enroll in this elective course are expected to demonstrate a level of responsibility and commitment appropriate for the workplace. Characteristics such as honesty, integrity, ethics, teamwork and a positive attitude are expected. Applications to enroll in this program may be obtained from guidance counselors.

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is designed to support students, particularly those in the academic middle, so that they can attend college and achieve their fullest potential. It also serves to level the playing field for students who are historically underrepresented in advanced courses, as well as students who may be the first in their families to potentially attend college.
AVID supports its students by teaching and reinforcing specific study and organizational skills, encouraging students to take more rigorous and challenging classes, providing skills necessary to succeed in college and ultimately preparing them for success at a four-year university/college. AVID students have skilled tutors, often college students studying to be teachers or studying one of the major subject areas. Tutors are scheduled regularly in the class to facilitate tutorials on student-generated, point-of-confusion questions from any core subject area.
Students attend field trips and enjoy speakers from careers and professions during the AVID class to foster an awareness of college and career options. Cooperative learning and applications that simulate the “real world” after high school are hallmarks of AVID. AVID is designed to provide support for at-risk students who possess academic potential but may not be working to the best of their abilities. Students trade a potential study hall period or an elective class for the opportunity to participate in this structured program. Students and parents sign a contract to help reinforce the requirements of the program.
