Welcome to our Ag-Ed Program!  This program is designed for students interested in a career in agriculture or an agriculture related field; including mechanics, engineering, aquaculture, animal sciences, companion animal care, horticulture, floral design, environmental sciences, forestry, biotechnology, and others.  Our curriculum emphasizes real world application of science, mathematics, technology, and life skills such as public speaking, group problem solving, and record keeping.  

Most of our students pursue a college prep curriculum- Agricultural Education courses are college prep weighted electives, with several classes being taught in conjunction with the UConn Early College Experience Program, earning students up to 15 college credits.  

Our program serves the following towns: Killingly, Brooklyn, Putnam, Plainfield, Sterling, Canterbury, Voluntown, Eastford, Pomfret, Griswold, Thompson, and Woodstock.  

Tuition and transportation costs to attend the Agricultural Education program are paid by the sending town.  We are a comprehensive public high school and a Connecticut School Choice option.
