The History Department's approach to the instruction and study of history is predicated on the foundation that Saint Andrew's School is a strong college preparatory institution. The department members affirm that it is essential for our students to master the following skills and historical knowledge:

  • a firm foundation in the roots of Western Civilization
  • a strong emphasis on the use and interpretation of primary sources, historiography, and collaborative learning techniques
  • the ability to think logically, read critically, write coherently, and speak persuasively
  • the ability to craft a research paper with emphasis on the use of primary sources, critical analysis, and thorough documentation
  • an appreciation of the role of geography in the history of a nation
  • an exposure to areas of the world other than Europe and the United States
  • an appreciation of the inter-disciplinary approaches to the study of history
  • an ability to master Honors and Advanced Placement courses for those qualified

Each of these itemized goals and objectives serves a discernible role in student comprehension and understanding of the discipline of history. Beginning with the Lower School's social studies curriculum, followed by the Middle School's geography/history duality, and ending with the Upper School's core of history offerings, the Saint Andrew's School K-12 history curriculum offers an array of tools and information. The curriculum provides an ongoing source of inspiration and factual expression, promoting a desire to delve further within the course offerings and achieve an even deeper appreciation of the realm of historical interpretation and cultural awareness.
