Social Studies

Courses in the social sciences from K12 address the principle issues from socially-oriented fields in ways that cohere with other K12 curricula, notably in science and history. They also prepare students for the world of global interactions awaiting them in work, travel, and potential further studies after high school.

The kindergarten program takes your student on a world tour of the seven continents, and provides an overview of American History through a series of biographies of famous Americans. The program in grades 1-4 tells the story of civilization from the Stone Age to the Space Age. Older students explore major themes and topics in greater depth through a pair of two-year survey courses, one on World History and the other on American History. Students examine why events happened as well what happened as they explore history and practice historical thinking skills.

Psychology and anthropology courses delve into the nature of humanity viewed both externally and internally, using a perspective provided by the long history of achievements in the fields, updated with the latest findings. Courses addressing cultural and political issues take a global perspective while sustaining a balanced and evenhanded approach. Those courses treating the specific structures and functions of government within the United States demonstrate this same balanced perspective, and always touch on the global context even when the focus is primarily American.

Courses in economics review the fundamental terminology, topics, and issues crucial for understanding today's complex and shifting financial landscape, and offer a firm foundation for grasping breaking news and shaping students' future professional decisions. Courses satisfy national standards and follows state guidelines where defined. Multiple versions of certain courses allow for appropriate placement, and all Advanced Placement courses satisfy the College Board's requirements.
