Paid internships are the cornerstone of students’ academic and business preparation. Completion of a compensated, finance-related internship between a student’s junior or senior year is a mandated requirement to graduate from a NAF academy. High School, Inc. internships are provided by the many Insurance and Financial Services (IFS) companies in the Hartford area.

These internships provide opportunities for students to learn professional, interpersonal and technical skills; gain exposure to a career in a specific field; and apply what they have learned in the classroom. The experience also strengthens teamwork, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
