The Social Studies Curriculum is designed to help students recognize their place within all of the social structures to which they belong: family, school, community, country, and world.

  • Grades K-2: the emphasis is on community building and social awareness. Topics studied include the continents, family structures, and social conventions.

  • Grades 3-6: students develop and apply map skills while learning about major topics and events in U.S. history, including European exploration, Native Americans, the American Revolution, westward expansion of the United States, the Civil War, and the Industrial Revolution.

  • Grades 7-8: the focus is on world geography and civics, including aspects of government at the local, state, and federal levels.

The student body organizes several charity and community programs fostering the development of the student as a responsible, contributing member of society.
