The Agriscience and Technology Program offers an opportunity for all in the lower Fairfield County region to explore the nation’s largest commercial business – AGRICULTURE!  Over 2000 career areas in the growing agricultural industry from agrimarketing to zoology become available to the students enrolled in the program.  Instruction in introductory level information, as well as more advanced technological skills, is provided.  Classroom instruction, laboratory/field experience, guest speakers, leadership development through FFA, and career exploration are all areas offered through this broad program.  After getting an overview of agriculture, students choose an area (or areas) of specialty during their last two years.  This program follows the three circle model of agricultural education which includes classroom instruction, FFA and SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience).  Students are required to participate in all three components of the program. 

 

FFA, the nation’s largest youth leadership organization, allows students to participate in local, district, state, and national career development events and leadership activities.  SAEs provide students with agricultural experience outside of class time.  Freshmen are required to complete 50 hours a year, while sophomores, juniors, and seniors are required to complete 200 hours.  Students may choose the type or topic of SAEs based on their interests.   

 

In summary, we are a college preparatory program that focuses on animal and plant related sciences (referred to as agriscience).  Students graduate our program very well prepared for college, and many times have already obtained credit for introductory college classes though our involvement in the UConn ECE program.  In addition, students learn skills they can use in their post-college career pathway.  Interest of our graduates includes horticulture, vet science, aquaculture, traditional farming, and floral design (to name a few).  The competitive and intellectual advantage the students gain makes the agriscience program a good choice for any student wanting to study animal or plant related sciences.      

 

With limited space available, all students interested in the Agriscience and Technology Program must fill out an application and may be interviewed.  They will receive a letter in the mail informing them of the status of their application.
