• Agriculture and Natural Resources

    The Agriculture and Natural Resources sector is designed to provide a foundation in agriculture for all agriculture students in California. Students engage in an instructional program that integrates academic and technical preparation and focuses on career awareness, career exploration, and skill preparation in seven pathways. The pathways emphasize real-world, occupationally relevant experiences of significant scope and depth in Agricultural Business, Agricultural Mechanics, Agriscience, Animal Science, Forestry and Natural Resources, Ornamental Horticulture, and Plant and Soil Science. Integral components of classroom and laboratory instruction, supervised agricultural experience projects, and leadership and interpersonal skills development prepare students for continued training, advanced educational opportunities, or entry to a career. (Citation: California Department of Education)

    Pathway courses should be taken in order. Any students who completes all the courses in the pathway, in order, earning a "C" grade or higher in all courses, will be granted a CTE Agriculture Pathway Completer Certificate. Additionally, on his/her official transcript it will have the designation of CTE Pathway completer. This will help colleges and potential employers recognize this achievement.
