Family Studies

Last updated on Thursday, September 01, 2016.

Family Studies at Glendale focuses on skills that students can carry on throughout life.

Our focus on healthy nutrition and life choices gives students opportunity to create tasteful and creative meals in our fully equipped kitchens. Our Take a Baby Home program offers students the chance to ‘parent’ a doll-child for a weekend and get an in-depth experience that teaches them more than any textbook. Extended teaching in our Parenting course and Living and Working with Children course helps teens develop life-long skills that have both personal and career applications.
