Parent Guidelines

The Prairie School offers a unique, educational opportunity called Interim, which involves real-life activities outside the classroom. Prairie juniors devote two weeks at the end of the school year to Interim, when they engage in serious academic exploration and research career options as an intern. During this time, students do not attend their regular classes, and instead, take advantage of opportunities to explore careers or become involved in a community service activity.

Interim participants may decide on internships in medical labs and advertising agencies, wilderness backpacking in western national parks, or foreign travel with school-sponsored trips. Whatever their choice, testimonials from Prairie alumni demonstrate that Interim is one of the most valuable educational options offered by the School. This year, Interim is scheduled for Tuesday, May 28th — Friday, June 7th.
