Family & Consumer Science

Middle school family and consumer sciences courses are part of the unified arts for all students. These exploratory courses provide students with broad, introductory experiences in resource management; individual, child and family development; nutrition and food; textiles; and, living environments. This experience-based program addresses concerns of personal and family living.

High school family and consumer sciences courses prepare students for competence in the work of the family and careers based on family and consumer sciences skills. An integrative approach to the relationships among individuals, families, and communities, and the environment, in which they function, is utilized throughout the high school program. Students have the opportunity to select a Maryland State Department of Education approved series of courses which prepare them for employment in the areas of child development, food production and management, or clothing and textile production and management. Certificate of Merit credit and/or articulated college credit may be earned for advanced-level courses. All twelve high school courses may be taken for elective credit.
