"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots."

Mission:      To train students to research, analyze, synthesize and communicate accurate conclusions about                       change over time.

About Us:
We are a group of educators dedicated to imparting historical knowledge. We use our expertise in the history of the Caribbean, the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia to offer our students a unique opportunity to understand the world in which they live today. We are committed to developing our students' understanding of the past while providing them with the intellectual tools and skills to advance their future.

Consequently, we employ various tools and techniques such as field trips, presentations, videos and stimulating discussions to facilitate this appreciation for history. Students' appreciation for history is best seen during the celebration of special events on campus.
