Every year in June the Katie School sends eight students on an international internship. There are two 4-week international internships, the first in London, England and the other in Zurich, Switzerland. The Katie School also offers two 3-week international internships, where four students will go to Bermuda or South Africa.
Applications are available for pick-up in the Katie School Office or by contacting Debbie Babcock. The application process begins in November and ends mid-January. Candidates are chosen shortly thereafter. The application deadline is typically late January.
