The agricultural science education program is built on the three core
areas of classroom / laboratory instruction, supervised agricultural
experience programs, and the FFA student organization activities and
FFA represents the relevancy to the core areas offering students
opportunities that change lives and prepare those students for premier
leadership, personal growth, and career success. Founded in 1928, the
FFA organization represents a large diversity of over 300 careers in the
food, fiber, and natural resources industry. FFA is an integral part of
a school system.
FFA uses agricultural education to create real-world success.
Agriculture teachers become advisers to local FFA chapters, which
students join. Chapter activities and FFA programs concentrate on the
three areas of our mission:
- Premier leadership
- Personal growth
- Career success
More than 7,000 FFA chapters are currently in existence.
Their programs are managed on a local, state, and national level. Each
chapter's program of activities is designed with the needs of the
students in mind. Activities vary greatly from school to school, but
they are based in a well-integrated curriculum.
