Humanities classes consist of integrated Language Arts and Social Studies classes with special emphasis on project based learning, the history of art and culture, and rigorous skills and content development. The Humanities program covers history through the lens of humanism (starting in the Italian Renaissance) and following through to modern times. In addition to the Language Arts and Social Studies courses, students are strongly encouraged to take a semester of a beginning arts course and a semester of an intermediate and/or advanced arts course in the same discipline. Visual and Performing Arts teachers will be working directly with the Language Arts and Social Studies teachers in this academy to reinforce learning and enhance artistic expertise.
