Welcome to Agricultural Sciences! 

The Agricultural Science Mission:
Agricultural Education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems.

What is Agricultural Science Education?








 

Our curriculums are made up of 3 major parts which help direct students to be college and career ready: 

Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE): SAE’s offer hands-on opportunities for students to refine their employability skills and tackle real-world situations. It also challenges students to apply what they learn in class and FFA activities in order to solidify knowledge and skills.   
   
Classroom and Lab: Academic & Technical Skills through classroom. The class component builds student knowledge of agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems and techniques, current technologies and advancements, and issues related to environmental, economic and social sustainability. It also integrates FFA and SAE concepts and principles into daily instruction.

FFA: Leadership and 21st Century Skills through FFA. The FFA offers opportunities to develop life and career skills as well as incentive programs that encourage student excellence in the class and SAE components. Without the class and SAE components, there would be no knowledge and skill basis for which the FFA could offer competitions or award programs. Likewise, without the FFA, the life and career skill attainment would be moderate.
