The goal of the Pope John Paul II Preparatory School Innovation and Entrepreneurship program is to combine rigorous understanding with creative thinking to produce new ideas, perspectives, and products. Development of innovative thinking occurs best when ideas are allowed to collide: student, faculty, and community perspectives provide a rich opportunity for generating new ideas and a way of thinking that will be valuable to students over a lifetime.
Immersion into potential careers as interns provides a wonderful opportunity for students to observe the skills needed in a profession and measure their interest in the field. Students are encouraged to ask questions and get to know all aspects of the career during their placements. While many students will choose to enter the workforce in the field of their internship placement, others use this as an opportunity to realize that their skills or interests are in a different area. That opportunity to grow in understanding is invaluable as students select their college, major, or professional path.
