Social Studies

Bacchus and Ariadne by Titian



The principal objective of the Social Studies program is the development of young adults who are ready for career, college and community involvement; citizens who are knowledgeable about the world, our own society and its evolution.  In order to accomplish this objective, a four-year sequence of courses is offered. The courses have been designed to provide the student with knowledge about the world both past and present, to teach the skills needed to evaluate data and make decisions, and to provide the opportunity to reflect on the values that have shaped societies.
