Social Studies

The Social Studies Department at Divine Child High School instills in students the skills of critical thinking, analytical writing, and civil argumentation that allow them to effectively communicate and contribute in an increasingly global society. Our curriculum develops a strong foundation of our national and global histories, as well as a sound competency in the social sciences, so that students may become informed and responsible contributors to their community. Education in the social studies embraces the inclusion of all students as diversity among learners embraces the democratic principles our nation was founded upon and develops students into thoughtful and discerning citizens. The social studies department establishes connections between the experiences of the past and the lives of our students, encouraging all to become responsible and active leaders during and beyond their time at Divine Child High School.
