Junior High
Grades 6 Through 8

Social Studies

Social Studies creates a framework for personal identity by exploring the societies, cultures, communities, and geographical sites of ancient and current civilizations. Students learn to live within their own social system, see it within the context of world cultures, and observe how the hand of God has worked through the ages. The courses integrate media, technology and map skills to enhance understanding. Students use critical thinking skills to learn about the world around them and their roles as responsible citizens.
