History and Social Sciences

The history department at Hebron Academy supports the premise that students need to have an understanding of the past in order to comprehend the present.The department believes that cultural awareness is critical to future interpersonal communication skills as the world is becoming increasingly interconnected. Teachers foster student literacy within the writing and discussing of historical concepts as well as guide students as they formulate and support their opinions in all modes of communication.

At Hebron Academy, we are fortunate to offer an array of history and social science courses. The foundations of these courses, coupled with the passions of the teachers, intend to inspire students to learn about the world in which we all live and appreciate the factors which brought us to this point in time.
