The Family & Consumer Sciences department prepares students for success in their personal and professional lives. The curriculum reinforces learning that takes place in the classroom and creates a purpose in the real world through the use of technology, mathematical skills and literacy. Academic skills are strengthened through the rigorous curriculum and authentic applications.

Courses in Family and Consumer Sciences expose students to a vast array of careers with an excellent future occupational outlook. Changes in the structure of the typical family have made it crucial for every student to be exposed to information and life skills that will help them learn about family life with real life experiences. Students of all levels benefit from Family and Consumer Science classes and in many cases experience success where they may not have elsewhere. When students are successful, their self-esteem is increased and they make better choices, both personally and educationally.
