Overview

Do you often wonder about fundamental questions on the meaning of life, what happens after we die, what it means to be a good person—and how each religion around the world deals with those questions?

We take field trips, invite guest lecturers and presenters, and incorporate discussion of current issues and events in classes. North Bay has many houses of worship, including synagogues, mosques, temples, and churches of various faiths, where you can study first-hand the traditions and teachings of many religions.​​

More and more, we’re offering students a chance to enrich their classroom experience with real-world opportunities. Recently, as part of the Death, Dying, and Spirituality course, we placed students at a palliative care facility where they assisted the board with documentation, creating brochures, and tracking data.
