Agriculture Academy

ASTA Magnet Program

Our Agriculture Science program provides education and training for many diverse careers in the agricultural field. The program incorporates three elements: classroom instruction, supervised agriculture experiences, and FFA activities.

FFA is an intra-curricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. FFA is one of the three components of agricultural education. The FFA has the unique characteristic of binding the agriculture program together and serving as the catalyst to advance the student more rapidly toward success.

The Agriculture Science & Technology Academy program is widely regarded as one of the most successful programs in the Nation.  ASTA FFA has won countless district and area championships along with holding 35 State Championships and 17 National Gold Emblem Championships in its 20 + year history.
