Agricultural Education in the Classroom

Agricultural education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture, food, fiber, and natural resources systems. Instruction is delivered through three major components: Classroom/lab, FFA and SAE (work-based learning).


The FFA is an intra-curricular program that changes the lives and prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. FFA members participate in leadership training, Career Development Events (Competitions), travel and gain skills needed for their future careers.
