History

The goal of the History Department is to ensure that each student is exposed to events of the past and challenged to consider why events or developments occurred. Through engaged discussions, students develop a greater understanding of the results of these events or ideas. Students explore the development of ideas or concepts over time, gaining a deeper knowledge of the past and its many meanings. A variety of ideas and interpretations are exposed to students to help them develop critical thinking skills, which are essential in today’s ever-changing society.

History Courses

It's important to stay innovative — I teach my students the importance of developing new questions. I encourage the boys to consider the impact of historical events and how those events have affected our world today. They learn to make those connections by comparing events in history to what is happening now.
