At Countryside Christian School, patrons wanted a high school program that would support all students’ preparation. With co-op—a for-credit internship program run in conjunction with local businesses—students test their readiness for life after graduation, and gain valuable work experience. In this video, a current student, a former student, and employer, and the principal explain how co-op prepares students for a life of service.
