Vanguard’s Humanities Department is a cornerstone of the school, combining English and History into a meaningful curriculum.
Humanities’ broad scope and sequence covers topics from identity to globalization, and the environment to race and religion.

The 4-year sequence of courses culminates in a rigorous portfolio process that students must present to graduate. Along the way, students participate in debates, roundtables, and write essays and stories to gain appreciation and mastery in the Humanities.
