Family and Consumer Sciences 

not your old Home Economics anymore.

Family and Consumer Sciences is the discipline that prepares young people for living in today's world as well as tomorrow's. We provide experiences in all areas of our curriculum to strengthen family life and to prepare students for the multiples roles they will hold in the future such as parent, family member, wage earner and community member.  We prepare them for adult roles including work and family responsibilities.
