C.A.S.E. (Agriculture)


Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education:


The CASE program prepares students to be successful in numerous careers in the agricultural sciences, as well as preparing them to further their education at the post-secondary level. This inquiry-based program incorporates classroom learning, FFA leadership and career development, as well as outside-the-classroom experiences through Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAE) and other internship opportunities. Students who select multiple offerings for CASE will be given priority scheduling over those students who select single courses as electives. Students must complete all CASE courses (Intro to AFNR, Principles of Ag - Animal, Principles of Ag - Plant, Plant Biotechnology & CAPSTONE.


Is It the Right Fit for Me?

Agricultural careers are a good fit for people who like to be outside and appreciate nature. They are well suited for people who are problem solvers who like to work independently. Comfort with technology and software is helpful as most modern farm equipment is quite high-tech.The work can sometimes be physically demanding, so being in good shape can be important. Many jobs in the field start early in the morning, and animals must be cared for every day of the year.

Careers in the Field

Careers in the field include:

  • Farmer
  • Soil Engineer
  • Beekeeper
  • Forester
  • Landscaper
  • Park Ranger
  • Fishery Manager

These are just a few examples! Discuss additional career paths with your School Counselor or CCTC's Counselor.
