The Highland Agriculture Program prides itself in providing hands on experiential learning for students that are interested in going to college or industry after high school. All of our courses offered meet the A-G requirements for students to enter into college, some courses are articulated or dual enrolled with Bakersfield College. As multiple CTE pathways are offered through the Ag program students have an opportunity to meet California Career and readiness Standards set forth by the Department of Education. Students who are enrolled in Agriculture at Highland participate not only in hands on learning, but also in leadership development, career exploration and personal Growth.
We offer four CTE Agriculture pathways geared to students individual interest; Mechanized Agriculture, Animal Science, Agriscience, and Floral/Horticulture. Although the underline tone and approach to all Ag classes deals with Business we currently do not offer an Ag business pathway.
