The Agricultural Education Model:
Instruction: Classroom and laboratory instruction is the foundation of all agricultural courses. Over 300 high schools in California offer standards-based instruction in agricultural education. Technical and academic content is made real by a “learn by doing” philosophy. Many courses meet high school graduation, University of California, and California State University system requirements.
SAE: Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Programs are individual specialized projects which empower students to apply concepts and principles learned in the classroom. Students experience unparalleled growth through their real world experiences in the three categories of SAE programs: Entrepreneurship (Ownership), Placement (Work Experience), and Agriscience (Research). SAE programs are curriculum based, documented, student managed, and recognized through degree and award programs.
FFA: “Learning to Do. Doing to learn. Earning to Live. Living to Serve.” The FFA motto exemplifies the impact made in countless members’ lives each year. As an intercurricular organization, students must be enrolled in agricultural education to be an FFA member. FFA provides unparalleled leadership development through motivational conferences, competitive career development events, community engagement and leadership offices.
