  The Social Studies Department Curriculum is designed to promote civic competence and to provide students the necessary background to make informed and reasoned decisions as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world. The Special strengths of the Social Studies program at Catholic Memorial are the interdisciplinary courses that were developed with the English Department and that are offered on the Freshmen and Junior levels. General College Prep or Accelerated level required courses in U.S. and World History prepare students at an appropriate pace, and electives in AP Economics, AP Government, and Sociology round out the course offerings.
