Bard High School

In an effort to highlight government careers, four students from Bard High School Early College (BHSEC), participating in a summer internship program, focused on public sector employers in the City of Cleveland, visited and toured Cleveland City Hall and were welcomed by Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Chief of Education, Monyka Price. As part of the four week program and partnership, accompanied by their program mentor, Dr. Lisa Thomas and Dean of Students, Arin Miller-Tait, students will tour various government buildings in Cleveland, including ADAMHS Board, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, Cuyahoga City Council and the Cleveland Housing Court.

This community-based program will expose interns to a broad range of public sector endeavors and government agencies. In addition, it will provide students an opportunity to learn first-hand about the daily operations and functions of a structured work environment in the public sector and also gain experience and valuable skills. 

Bard High School Early College Cleveland, on Terminal Avenue, is a four-year public school that allows students to take a two-year, tuition-free college course of study in the liberal arts and sciences following the 9th and 10th grades. Students at BHSEC,  are taught by college faculty in undergraduate seminars, graduate with a high school diploma, and earn an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree from Bard College.
