The Social Studies/Business Department prepares young adults to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow with courage, intelligence, character, and a respect for human values. The Lasallian values we follow, the freedom we cherish, the material and spiritual comforts we enjoy, and the institutions that serve us are the products of great minds from many cultures. To fully appreciate this heritage, and to further the progress our world has already attained, we must acquire an understanding of the civilizations and the environments that have produced this heritage.
