Examining Our Social Studies Curriculum
One of the most important steps we take to prepare our private high school students for a successful academic career in college is to enhance their understanding of the world at large. Through our private college prep school’s social studies curriculum, we can give students a comprehensive understanding of the world as it was in the past, as it is today, and the direction it is heading. We offer our youngest students courses in U.S. History and World Geography, while some of our tenth to twelfth graders will have the opportunity to take Modern World History or Western Civilization, advanced U.S. History, and Civics and Economics.
