The major objective of the Social Studies Department is to prepare our young people to accept the responsibilities and challenges of a democratic society. It is our intent to foster an appreciation, an understanding, and an acceptance for the values and principles for which this country stands.
In meeting these ends, the Social Studies Department adheres to the requirements issued by the State of South Carolina. All students are required to complete three full units of social studies: one unit of United States History, one unit of American Government/ Economics and the final unit may be earned from a variety of courses that are designed to meet students abilities and needs.
College Prep Requirements: Three units of social studies are required for college prep students, which include one unit of U.S. History along with one unit for economics/ government.
