The Religious Studies Department empowers students to embrace a global perspective on the world awaiting them. Classes thoughtfully connect students to relevant, meaningful experiences in and out of the classroom, and will complement the teaching role of parents by guiding students to a fuller understanding of the faith community in which they participate.
