Agricultural Education is a systematic program of instruction available to students desiring to learn about the science, business, technology of plant and animal production, and/or about the environmental and natural resources systems. Agricultural Education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture, food, fiber, and natural resources systems. Agricultural Education prepares students for more than 300 careers in the agricultural industry including production, financing, processing, marketing, and distribution of agricultural products. Agricultural Education develops leaders for the vast network of supporting careers that provide the supplies, services, management, and conservation of our natural resource systems.
 
The Agricultural Education program is built on the three core areas of classroom and laboratory instruction, supervised agricultural experience programs, and FFA student organization activities. The quality Agricultural Education program is designed for delivery through a balance of these three core educational strategies:
 
Classroom/Laboratory Instruction – Quality instruction in and about agriculture that utilizes a “learning by doing” philosophy. Agricultural Education is an applied science that incorporates math, reading, social studies, and physical, chemical and biological sciences into each course.
 
Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Programs – Students put knowledge and theory to use through relevant, experiential, agricultural learning projects. While completing SAE projects, students learn to apply the concepts and principles taught in their agriculture classes to real-world problems and scenarios.
 
FFA Student Organization Opportunities – FFA activities are an integral part of the Agricultural Education program in which students experience numerous opportunities for developing premier leadership, personal growth, and career success.
