Welcome to the Canadian & World Studies / Social Sciences department at St. Michael C.S.S. The department offers a variety of courses in geography, history, and humanities. Our faculty includes at least one full time teacher in each discipline with an honours degree and senior qualifications in their subject. These teachers have also acquired their subject specialist qualifications from the Ontario College of Teachers. Other faculty within the department teach the subjects on a part time basis with most having a minor in the subject they are teaching.
The department also promotes the Environmental High Skills Major and History Advanced Placement programs at St. Michael.
Students within the Environmental HSM are given a variety of experiences that develop the essential skills needed for the workplace or postsecondary study. Seven sector-recognized certifications or training programs are offered, as well as experiential learning and career exploration activities.
The History Advanced Placement courses provide students with exceptional preparation for university level study while still in high school and in many cases, increases the likelihood of university acceptance. Students who choose to write the grade 12 AP exam and score high enough will be granted a certificate by the College Board which many universities will recognize as the equivalent of either ½ or 1 full university credit.
