  • The Agricultural Education Classes are designed to offer students a three-year or four-year program of studies in agriculture. To align with the recommended Career Cluster and Pathway of Agriculture Food & Natural Resources, it is recommended that students take Ag Science I as freshmen and Ag Science II as sophomores. For juniors and seniors, the following electives are available: Ag Construction, Ag Sales & Communications, Floral & Landscape Design, Food Science, Conservation & Natural Resources, Agriculture Structures, Greenhouse Management & Horticulture, and Advanced Animal Science. In order to have a beneficial and fulfilling Agricultural Experience, students are encouraged to continue through the program for three years.

     
    The Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources Career Cluster includes the following pathways: Agricultural Business and Management Systems, Agricultural Mechanics and Technology Systems, Plant Sciences/Horticulture Systems, Food Science Systems, Natural Resources Conservation Systems and Animal Science Systems. All of these courses include classroom laboratory instruction, Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAE), and leadership training through the appropriate Career and Technical Student Organization.
     
    The Future Farmers of America (FFA), a national organization, is an integral part of the organized instructional programs in agricultural education and prepares students for a wide range of careers in agriculture, agribusiness, and other agriculture-related occupations. Activities and instruction will be carried out in all agriculture classes, and it is recommended that students be dues-paying members of the FFA.
