Students at The Academy will take requisite courses such as World History and American History, and will have the opportunity to take additional courses within the department such as Modern American History, Honors World Religions, and AP Psychology. 

The foundational philosophy of the Social Studies courses is that language, discussion, reflection, and imagination lead to the development of skills which help students understand and interpret the human experience. The curriculum requires that students develop a personal consciousness or an active sense of civic duty through the in-depth exploration of history, psychology, philosophy, and the likes; the ability to understand the human experience outside of one’s own individual social and cultural context allows students to develop a conscience more suited to the multicultural world in which they live.
