Family & Consumer Sciences

Welcome to the FACS Homepage!!!


Thank you for visiting!  Please browse through the site to see some of the things we are doing in FACS classes at Manila High School and in FCCLA, the student organization that reflects FACS.






FCCLA Members who attend any district, state, or national meeting or competition, including STAR Events, must follow FCCLA's dress code or they will NOT be allowed to attend the meeting or compete in any competition!!

The dress code is as follows:

red, black or white polo or oxford shirt (with collar--no t-shirts!)

*black pants, skirt, or capris (no shorts--absolutely no jeans or denim)

 *black dress shoes (no flip-flops, canvas, or tennis shoes!)

I will make an order of official FCCLA polos early in the school year if students want to order one!






Family and Consumer Sciences, formerly Home Economics, is one of three career education programs at Manila High School.
