Agriculture Program Descriptions

Introduction to Agriscience
Introduction to Agriscience serves as an introduction to the science of agriculture and will provide a solid foundation for advanced agriscience classes or for additional agriculture/science classes. Students will be introduced to agricultural science topics including biotechnology, animal science, mechanical technology, food science, plant science, environmental and natural resources, and entomology. These concepts are taught through classroom and laboratory instruction and applications such as the Supervised Agricultural Experience Program (SAE) and FFA Career Development Activities. This program will utilize the problem solving method of instruction and will rely upon the agricultural information systems, including the Internet. Leadership, citizenship, and cooperation skills are taught through participation in FFA activities. The FFA is an intra-curricular vocational student organization designed to provide a learning laboratory for the implementation of this curriculum.
Agriculture and Natural Resources

Agriculture and Natural Resources is a pathway to introduce the student to the broad field of agriculture and natural resources, including the production of plants and animals and the management of natural resources. The program includes instruction in the applied sciences related to plant and animal production and natural resource conservation and management, as well as introducing the student to agribusiness management practices and maintenance of facilities and equipment. Students in the pathway will participate in active learning exercises including integral activities of the FFA organization and supervised experiences. Students who successfully complete the competencies in this pathway will possess fundamental knowledge and skills that can be used to secure entry level employment or as a foundation for continuing their education.
