Social Studies

The Social Studies curriculum is designed to expose the student to Western Civilization and culture, the history and culture of other peoples, mankind’s achievements and failures, and the principal ideas that have molded Western, Asian and African man. The curriculum is also designed to stimulate the student to think for himself as he analyzes and draws conclusions from a variety of primary and secondary sources.

Students enjoy different assignments, including family histories, cooperative learning, stock market games, research papers and mock trials. The department continues to explore the needs and interests of the students while maintaining a rigorous academic curriculum.

Finally, the department seeks to prepare students to be independent, forward-thinking participants, actively involved in the 21st century. Faculty members encourage tolerance by exposing students to diverse cultures and values, and invite them to embrace the Jesuit ideal of being men for others.
