Family and Consumer Science programs offer students unique opportunities to develop human life skills that lead to quality of life for individuals and families.

Our work focuses on helping students become caring individuals who are able to reach their own potentials while also helping other reach theirs.

Working to improve families by educating about foods & nutrition, child development, relationships, consumerism, careers, clothing and textiles, housing and the environment,

If kids come to us from strong, healthy functioning families, it makes our job easier. If they do not come to us from strong, healthy, functioning families, it makes our job more important.
