Welcome to The Agricultural Education Center

The Agricultural Education program is designed for Flathead and Glacier High School students interested in the field of agriculture.  Courses are designed for students preparing for careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture, food, fiber, and natural resource systems.  The curriculum is embedded with real agriculture which provides students the opportunity to creatively solve problems and develop the technical knowledge and skills desperately needed in today's workforce.  Learning comes alive for students as they engage in subjects through hands on methods in areas including animal science, plant science, Ag mechanics, Ag business, natural resources, and leadership development.  Supervised Agricultural Experience (work-based learning) is a component which promotes record-keeping and the application of knowledge and skills to the real world.  Students are also encouraged to participate in the FFA, an organization which functions as an integral part of the agricultural courses and provides endless opportunities at the local, district, state, and national level.

Students excel at state ag, leadership events

State results are in and the FFA continues to shine.
