Social Studies

The purpose of Social Studies is to assist in the development of the student as an individual who will function as a member of an increasingly complex society. Responsible citizenship is the ultimate goal of Social Studies.

Understanding the past brings a better future...

St. Andrew's High School’s Social Studies department aims to develop critical thinkers who can look at the world with a multi-dimensional perspective. Through studies in Canadian history, students consider Canada from Francophone and Aboriginal perspectives in order to make sense of world events and political economies. Throughout the high school program, they have opportunities to learn about  European history, Geography, Psychology and Law. These programs help students prepare for post-secondary studies in the social sciences. 


This is how I explain what religion at this school teaches me. Sure I learn the history and analyze the Bible, but I also have been forming a set of morals and values that will go with me for the rest of my life. They are the foundation of who I am.

I am very excited to be able to link my Olympic journey, full of trials and tribulations, back to a very important time and place in my life: St. Andrew's Regional High School.

I feel truly blessed to have had the privilege of attending St. Andrew’s Regional High School. St. Andrew’s has given me the opportunity to grow spiritually, academically, artistically, and athletically.
