To be part of the FFA, students are required to elect at least one agriculture course each year. Leadership training, public speaking and other life skills gained in the FFA prepare students for post high school experiences. The FFA meets during the co-curricular periods. Students in grade 9 should enroll in Environmental Science first semester and Ag Business Economics I second semester. Independent Study Agr. is offered for most courses in cases where it is impossible for students to schedule an Ag course to meet FFA credit.
