The Social Studies Program is designed to foster and develop global awareness — to see the differences in people and learn to appreciate them. It is geared to help us recognize that to be different, or to do things differently, is not to be wrong. It helps us to understand the way others think, behave, and make decisions. The program instills in our students the desire to meet the challenges of a fast changing world scene, and move toward a global community in which peace, social justice, and quality of life play a major role.
