Social Studies


The Social Studies Department’s purpose is to help young people understand, through the study of past and present, what it means to be a Christian human being in today’s world. The students will develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions as citizens of a diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world of finite resources. Social Studies is a vital part of the curriculum, embracing the knowledge and skills needed to make positive contributions to society.
