Canadian and World Studies, the Humanities and Social Sciences

Department Head: Mr. Rob Capretta

The Canadian and World Studies, the Humanities and Social Sciences curriculum is delivered through the traditional subject areas of Geography, History, Law, Politics, Social Sciences, and Family Studies. The focus of the curricula is on local, national, and global issues. A significant emphasis is also placed on skill development through a grade nine to twelve continuum intended to prepare students for post-secondary education and the world of work. Students are provided with a range of rich learning experiences designed to foster critical thinking, personal and social development, civic responsibility, literacy, and character education.

Courses in Geography are compulsory in grade nine and offered in both academic and applied, as well as French Immersion. The emphasis in all our programs is to develop geographic knowledge and skills that contribute to an understanding of Global and Canadian diversity. Field studies take students to local features such as Gatineau Parc and Lafleche Caves.
