Family & Consumer Sciences (FCS)
Family and Consumer Sciences Education provides a unique learning experience empowering students to manage the everyday challenges of living and working in a diverse, global society. Courses in Family and Consumer Sciences emphasize community leadership, coping and key critical thinking skills needed to deal with the challenges affecting one’s environment. Instruction strengthens basic academic skills in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies and develops critical-thinking skills through practical applications and problem solving of real-life situations. To address these concerns, students often participate in student generated projects within the classroom setting. Whether students are interested in exploring a variety of content areas, deepening their core subject knowledge, or developing a future career pathway, FCS programs offer a wide range of opportunities for all students to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors necessary for success in the 21st century.
