Course Offerings

Please access the Program of Studies to view the exciting courses that the social studies department offers. All students must take 3.5 years of required social studies courses, we offer four levels of each of these courses ranging from honors (approval of teacher) to collaborative. These required courses are:

  • Ancient World History (Grade 9)
  • Modern World History (Grade 10)
  • U.S. History (Grade 11)
  • *Civics

*The Civics requirement may be fulfilled by either our Civics & American Government, Introduction to Law or Contemporary Issues courses.

In addition, we offer four Advanced Placement courses - AP United States History (fulfills the Grade 11 requirement), AP European History, AP Psychology and AP Human Geography.

We encourage all students to enroll in as many of our elective course offerings as they can fit into their schedule. There are 10 electives to choose from including Psychology, Facing History & Ourselves and College Sociology & College History (these two courses offer college credit to students that successfully complete the class).
