What is FFA?


FFA is an intracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. FFA, Supervised Agricultural Experience, and Classroom Instruction make up the three components of agricultural education.


The FFA experience is valuable to all students, regardless if they do or do not ultimately pursue agricultural careers. FFA members are both prepared to embark on a career in agriculture through opportunities available in eight different career pathways, and they are prepared for career success in another chosen field because the components of the mission become differentiating power skills. FFA members, regardless of future occupation, become informed and supportive consumers, leaders in building their communities and help strengthen agriculture.
