Family Studies

Welcome to Family Studies!

Family Studies is a multidisciplinary subject area within the Social Sciences & Humanities curriculum that encompasses four areas: food and nutrition, fashion and housing, personal life management, and child studies & human development.

New for 2024/25! Entering Gr. 9 students can now choose TFJ1O Hospitality – Culinary Focus. As a T-coded course, this will meet the new requirement for a Gr. 9/10 Tech course. Alternatively, Gr. 9s can choose HIF1O Exploring Family Studies for a broader approach to developing personal life skills.
