The Agriculture Education courses at Southern High School are
committed to developing tomorrows leaders. Agriculture is the nation's largest employer, with more than 24 million people working in some area of the industry. FFA prepares members for more than 300 careers in the science, business, and technology of agriculture.
An Agricultural Science and Technology program not only exposes students to a multitude of career opportunities, it helps them discover their passion in life, develop their strengths, introduce them to new experiences, and achieve success.
There are three main components through which agricultural education provides well-rounded educational experiences: classroom and laboratory instruction, Supervised Agricultural Experiences, and FFA.
