MSJ, under the umbrella of Rutland Catholic Schools (RCS), has instituted an internship program with a variety of businesses in the Rutland community.
For the 2011, 10-week pilot program, two Seniors are placed at local companies for one day per week. The program is designed, based on a Cristo Rey model, so that, when fully funded and functioning with Seniors for the 2011-2012 school year. The goals of the program are to allow students to be ambassadors for MSJ in the community, gain appreciation and experience of working in the business community and will promote financial and community support of MSJ's growth and development as a community resource. The projected number of students for the next school year is 8-10 with as many businesses participating for a 10-moth commitment.
