FCCLA is the Career and Technical student organization that has family at the heart of it. Family is the focus: strengthening families to have strong communities, careers and strong leaders.

In 1945, home economics leaders pushed for the creation of a student organization that promoted home economics principles. On June 11, 1945, Future Homemakers of America was founded at a convention in Chicago. What many formerly referred to as "Home Economics" have now morphed into "Family and Consumer Sciences." Home economics curriculum focused on making life at home more efficient and included coursework covering nutrition, cooking, sewing, construction and child care.

The Family and Consumer Sciences classroom each day gives students skills they can use for success in a career - teamwork, time management, communication, problem solving, public speaking, money management, healthy lifestyles and much more.
