The Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is a national Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for young men and women in Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education in public and private school through grade 12. FCCLA offers opportunities and resources to gain employable skills and industry insight, by addressing personal work and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education. At these Competitive Events, students apply their skills and knowledge gained through the Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education and compete on a region/district, state and national level.
This year, Confluence Preparatory Academy’s FCCLA students competed in the Regional Competitions under the leadership of Lisa Banks, Family, and Consumer Science Teacher and FCCLA Adviser at CPA.
