Taos Academy Internship Program

Taos Academy Internship Program


Taos Academy’s Internship Program gives elective credit to high school students who are volunteering in the community, participating in a sports program, or gaining job experience. The goal of TA’s Internship Program is for students to gain marketable skills and give back to the community while exploring interests to further their post-secondary goals. By providing real-world applications to the learning process, internship opportunities expand student understanding of the possibilities for a career in their chosen field. 

The length of time for internships may vary. An internship can be for a day or two, such as a job shadow or volunteer opportunity.  An internship may also be scheduled on a regular basis once or twice a week such as a paying job or mentorship. Several similar internships may be added together to gain enough hours for elective credit.  A full credit is 200 hours and a half credit is 100 hours.  To get started, email Jason Weisfeld at [email protected] to get the necessary forms and information.


Students are expected to follow Taos Academy’s policies in the TA Student Handbook.  They must arrive on time, be polite, dress appropriately, and use appropriate language during internship hours. Use of electronic devices - including cell phones -  is prohibited, except as allowed by the internship sponsor.
