Summer Success Institute
The Summer Success Institute (SSI) is a four-week business training program that prepares incoming students for the corporate work environment. The SSI is designed to introduce the students to workplace skills including, but not limited to, Communication Skills, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Office Skills such as handling confidential documents, business ethics, filing, copying, taking notes, and customer and guest services. Successful completion of the Summer Success Institute is required to be fully admitted into Cristo Rey Miami High School. Throughout the course, students' interests and skills are assessed. While the CWSP will take Job Partner Criteria and students' preferences into account, the assignment of a job is the sole discretion of the CWSP.
At the end of the SSI training program, students will be matched with Job Partners, and the entire job team will visit their workplace, receive a general orientation, meet co-workers, and be briefed on job place expectations.
