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.
