The goal of the History Department is to introduce students to the rich cultural variety of the human community, to acquaint them with the development of the major traditions underlying civilization, and to provide them with an opportunity to read history in depth. Our students progress each year through a planned college preparatory curriculum focused on maximizing reading and writing levels, while developing both the critical and creative thinking skills needed to meet the challenge of collegiate academics.
"It is important for our students to learn as much as possible about different religions, and cultures, in order to better understand the global community in which they live."
