Senior Year Internship: Horizon Program


The Horizon Senior Internship program matches seniors with month-long projects and programs that represent the variety of interests and passions of the class. Internships are created at schools, hospitals, and many businesses (see list). In 2017, the Class of 2017 ventured to the deep seas of Belize, a wildlife sanctuary in Namibia, and the rivers of Idaho and Wyoming. We also continued to contribute to local organizations, including HomeFront, The Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association, and Pennington’s Fire Department/First Aid department. If a student wasn’t passionate about a more traditional internship, one designed his or her own! Some of these projects included a Pennington School composting initiative, painting a beautiful mural outside of the Dean of Students Office, and inventing a new video game.
