Social Studies

We live in a diverse and challenging world. Our Social Studies Department strives to expose our students to a variety of world cultures through our Global Studies course at the end of which all sophomores will successfully complete the New York State Regents. As our students progress to junior year, their studies will center on our own American History either through an Advanced Placement course or a regents based course. As seniors, the students will continue a more in depth examination of the workings of our government on the local, state and national level, and then tackle the problems of both national and personal finance through our Economics course. 

  • Students have earned up to 16 college credits through the AP US History and AP Psychology courses. 
  • More than 75% of our students were certified by the WISE personal finance program, awarding Bishop Kearney a Blue Certification.
