ANNOUNCING THE ALUMNI INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The Alumni Internship Program is a new initiative that officially began in January 2021. The program's goal is to place alumni in college in an internship in one of the many departments of Mount Paran Christian School. There are guidelines and procedures to follow when considering an internship at the school, but the program offers great flexibility and is sure to be a success with young alumni.
The MPCS Alumni Internship Program provides opportunities for alumni would like to partner with the school in gaining valuable hands-on experience within a particular department of the school that relates to the career they are pursuing.
During the 2021 spring semester, two alumni interned at MPCS: Gracie Lochridge '17 (Speech Pathology) and William Deal '17 (Marketing - Videography and Photography).
Future interships are possible in the following areas: Information Technology, Development, Human Resources, Administrative Services, Servant-Leadership, Marketing and Communications, Finance, Operations, Performing Arts Administration, Performing Arts Program, Athletic Administration and Coaching, Merchandising and Retail Management, Healthcare, Counseling, Summer Camps, Student Teaching, and more.
