When working with high school students and helping to guide families through the college selection process, we have heard countless testimonials from students and parents alike regarding the benefits of experiential learning opportunities, such as summer internships. The administration and several Ranney parents assembled the Upper School's first group of 12 rising senior interns, all of which were in the medical profession. Due to the success of this program and the gracious support of our Ranney families, dozens of students in grades ten, eleven and twelve take advantage of these hands-on learning experiences in the fields of medicine, business, finance, law, education and many more. Student comments ranged from, "This was the best part of my summer!" to, "I can't believe I was able to watch a live surgery!" It is clear that these experiences are valuable and rewarding.
Each summer, we offer internships for our students in the following fields, and we are always looking for new opportunities: finance, government, engineering, business, entrepreneurship, law and medicine. The success of last summer's program stemmed from the many members of the Ranney community from all divisions who volunteered to host one of these budding professionals. A special thank you to our Ranney families who were able to offer so many rich and diverse internship opportunities to our students. This is your chance be a part of the growing program.

The Upper School is excited to build this program and connect our Ranney students with adults who have found success in their chosen careers. It is our hope that the partnerships formed through this program will continue to build and grow for years to come.
