  • Through agricultural education, students are provided opportunities for leadership development, personal growth and career success. Agricultural education instruction is delivered through three major components:

    • classroom/laboratory instruction (contextual learning)
    • supervised agricultural experience programs (work-based learning)
    • student leadership organizations (National FFA Organization, National Young Farmer Educational Association, and National Postsecondary Agricultural Student Organization).
