The innovative Co-Curriculum program at Madeira integrates experiential learning with the cultural, political, and business life of the nation’s capital. Through this internship program, girls learn from real-world experience, graduating with a solid resume that rivals that of college students. The unique grade-level objectives of the Co-Curriculum program progress from learning about identity and community during freshman and sophomore years to experiencing “real-life work” and leadership training during junior-year internships in Capitol Hill offices and student-selected internships during the girls’ senior year.
