Social Studies

The goal of the Cazenovia High School Social Studies Department is to cultivate knowledge and skills among our students to help them become active, contributing citizens of our community, state, nation and world. Students in grades 8 through 12 pursue a well-rounded curriculum that includes introductory American history (8), early world history (9), modern world history (10), advanced American history (11) as well as government and economics (12).
