Social Studies Department

Welcome to the Social Studies Department, where the social sciences reside and where history comes to life.

The Social Studies Program focuses on the processes of critical thinking, problem solving and historical analysis. Through its several disciplines, the program seeks to educate the whole person in a changing society by offering a curriculum which reflects a balance between the study of past cultures and a consideration of contemporary humanity and the global community.

Government and Economics in Grade 12. In addition, elective courses in Psychology and Sociology are offered.
