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 conversation 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.

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.
