The purpose of Home Economics is to help students be good stewards of the gifts and abilities that God has given them. We put an emphasis on "survival" cooking-the kinds of things that a young adult could accomplish in a first apartment or in a college setting. We use crock pots, microwaves, as well as conventional ranges and small appliance. Basic cooking and baking techniques are explored. Sewing includes making a pair of pajama pants-a project that has practical value and learning to do some basic clothing repairs.
