Family Studies Department

The Family Studies and Social Sciences department encompasses three subject areas: family studies, general social sciences and equity studies. Although these subject areas are very different from one another, they all explore the ways in which individuals influence and are influenced by families, communities, cultures, institutions, and societies, and by ideas, norms, and values.  Our courses emphasize inquiry and experiential learning opportunities.  They provide students with essential knowledge and transferable skills that are applicable in various areas of their lives.   The department proudly features a state-of-the-art food technology lab, which rivals many commercial restaurant kitchens and an impressive fashion classroom.   Family Studies courses are offered in grades 9-12, while equity and social science classes are offered at the senior level beginning in grade 11.
