The Marceline High School Ag Department is dedicated to the succesof our students, our FFA chapter, and our community.

Originally, opened in 1926, the Marceline Ag Department was open for 31 years until it closed in 1957.  Fifty years later, the Marceline R-V School Board recognized the benefits of this program for the Marceline students and reinstated the program in 2007.  In November of that year, the Marceline FFA Chapter was Chartered.


Program Philosophy

            The purpose of the Marceline R-V agriculture program is to provide a broad education in agriculture that will develop students into productive, creative, and critically thinking adults, literate in agriculture.  This program will prepare secondary students for entry level employment and entrepreneurial positions as well as preparing students for post-secondary education. 

            The instructional areas of the agriculture program will include, but not limited to: leadership, animal production, plant production, agricultural construction, agricultural structures, farm management, agribusiness, and natural resources and conservation.  These courses will provide students with a broad, well rounded view of agriculture.

            Student involvement in the local FFA program is essential in developing well rounded students.  The FFA program will provide students with leadership, social, and human relation skills needed for success.  The FFA will also create a relationship between the school and the local community, which essential for total program success.

            The program will develop student’s decision making ability through active participation in SAE programs.  Observing students’ work and their SAE projects will help to identify the needs of the students.  SAE will provide students the ability to use formalized instruction in a way that will prepare them for the work force or continuing their education.

Program Objectives:

  1. Be mindful of the effect public policy has on the agriculture industry
  2. Create well rounded, inventive students that are agriculturally literate.
  3. Supply knowledge and direction with regards toward agricultural careers.
  4. Provide guidance and knowledge to students interested in post-secondary education.
  5. Understand the contributions of agriculture to society as a whole.
  6. Appreciate the value of vocational and leisure activities involved in agriculture.
  7. Provide practical applications for other subjects in the total education program of the school.
