Growing up and becoming an adult is sometimes hard, and one Texas school district is trying to help.

KVUE reports Cedar Ridge High School in Round Rock is offering a class called "Adulting 101. Students who take the class will learn a series of basic life skills that will come in handy once they graduate.

Some of the class lessons:

  • How to cook healthy food
  • Tips on making a good resume
  • Money management
  • How to nail an interview

"We're teaching them basic skills on how to survive, said Chef Ralph Chavez. "It's not really high-end culinary stuff, but just when they graduate they'll know how they're going to feed themselves."

Freshman Shayla Partidge said one of her favorite parts of the class is learning how to cook healthy meals.

"For people joining Adult 101, it can help them learn more so they can start eating healthier and have a more balanced diet," she said.

The school hopes to add basic automotive skills to the curriculum soon.
