Social Studies

We believe that...Social Studies encompasses more than the study of people from past eras. It is an examination of people's dreams and stories, desires, interactions, outside forces, and factors that create history. Social Studies is a road map for those who care to travel it and the starting point for intellectual journeys.

The Vergennes Union High School Social Studies Department provides students with a framework for studying their heritage, making connections to the present, planning their future, and becoming scholars and autonomous learners in a global community.
