Community-Based Learning Partnerships

The Education Cooperative (TEC)

Dedham is a member of The Education Cooperative (TEC), a regional collaborative serving thirteen towns in metrowest Boston. The programs offered to students are generally on a fee-for-service basis.

  • The Internship Program provides students with firsthand experience in the work world. Interns are matched, based on interest, with sponsors in professional settings. Each intern makes a 60-hour commitment to the program. Parents/guardians or students pay all fees and provide transportation.
  • TEC Online courses may present an opportunity for students to take courses not usually offered in high school. TEC Online courses developed with college and industry partners include advanced content, practical application of studies, and career exploration.
