Workplace Ready: The Business Training Institute
Cristo Rey Newark High School students are well prepared for the workplace right from the start. Before beginning their first internship, students are required to attend our Business Training Institute. For many, it is their first introduction to the professional work environment.
Held at Cristo Rey Newark High School, the Business Training Institute is an intensive four-week experience in July that acquaints students with what’s expected in the workplace. Courses — taught by business consultants, adjunct college professors, corporate partner supervisors and Cristo Rey Newark staff — model the international bestseller, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, and also focus on skills including computer literacy, remedial math and English, workplace behavior and appearance. An outdoor field trip introduces students to effective team building and communicating.
Following freshman year, all students complete a refresher course through the Business Training Institute before the start of each academic year.
