Family and Consumer Science classes at Tulpehocken High School focus on current knowledge about subjects that relate to everyday life.  These subjects include child/human development, clothing and sewing, foods and nutrition, housing and interior design, and resource management.
Two full-time home economists instruct all the Family and Consumer Science courses taught at the JSHS.  Eight grade students are introduced to most of the Family and Consumer Science subject areas during a trimester course and all senior high students complete our Contemporaroy Living course.  This course delves into both money management and parenting skills.
In Addition to the two required courses, senior high students are offered an array of very popular electives.  Currently our elective courses are Baking Basics, Child Development, Food for Fitness, Interior Design, Modern Cookery, Small Businiess Establishment, and So Sew.  Each of these elective courses are designed to provide in depth study of needed life skills.
A glimpse into either our resource room or our classroom could find these students engaged in a food laboratory, studying furniture design, caring for the Baby Think It Over, sewing a sweatshirt, reconciling a bank statement, or a variety of other learning experiences.
The family and Consumer Science Department also sponsors the Culinary Arts Club.  Participation in this club gives students the oppertunity to explore culinary careers, assume leadership positions and be involved in service projects.  Profits from the group's fundraisers are used for club activities and to purchase equipment for the department.
