Family and Consumer Sciences or FACS is a course of study which teaches a comprehensive body of skills, research, and knowledge that helps people make informed decisions about their well-being, relationships, and resources to achieve optimal quality of life. There are many areas of study within the FACS curriculum at Corner High School, including human development, personal and family finance, housing and interior design, food science, nutrition, and wellness, textiles and apparel, and consumer and financial planning. From these areas of study, a student will learn how to apply math, science, literacy, and communication skills to everyday living.
Additionally, Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America, FCCLA, is an integral, co-curricular component of the Family and Consumer Sciences program at Corner High School. This organization serves as a means to enhance classroom instruction while helping students develop leadership abilities, participate in community service projects, expand workplace-readiness skills, and broaden opportunities for personal and professional growth.
