What is FACS Education?
The focus of Family and Consumer Sciences is on living skills, family relations and wage earnings. While students need basic core academic competencies, there are other skills that also closely correlate with adult success. Some of these skills include: the ability to set and maintain goals, the ability to resolve problems, the ability to work in teams, the skill to communicate clearly and the ability to balance family and work. Through FACS programs, students learn "people skills" - skills that are critical to professional success.
