  • Social Studies courses at The Woodstock Academy engage learners by encouraging them to identify and form points of view, develop clear oral and written expression, and think critically. Students take three required social studies courses as a part of the core curriculum. Freshman students start with Modern World History or World Cultures, focusing on European History. Sophomores get specific with U.S. Government and Politics where they learn about and how to participate in federal, state, and local government and politics. Juniors study Modern U.S. History. Elective course offerings include Sociology, Psychology, Military History, International Relations I and II, and many more.  Students are also invited to participate in various social studies sponsored events, such as local election debates and candidate meet and greets.
