IMPACT supports students in the art and strategy of inquiry. Analysis and action are at the program’s forefront, engaging students with essential questions that ask them to actively participate in their social studies learning like never before.

IMPACT provides support for students to deeply comprehend what they read, to write effectively, and to communicate clearly and with purpose.

IMPACT allows students to see themselves as a part of the global community by highlighting current events, celebrating unique and diverse individuals, and connecting the past with the present. Students are encouraged to take action for true civic engagement.

Let’s make an impact on the next generation of informed and engaged citizens.
