Work-Based Learning allows students to apply classroom theories to practical situations, to explore career options, and to pursue personal goals. Ultimately, students may participate in Work-Based Learning opportunities such as internships and clinical experiences within our local businesses and industries for an average of 6 hours per week while earning high school credit. Our Work-Based Learning students are juniors and seniors from both Dickson County High School and Creek Wood High School.
