Agriculture Science

  • Covina High School has a farm on its campus, which allows us to offer Agriculture Science and Animal Science courses. These courses acquaint the students with the six classes of livestock, plant science, and the various fields and phases of agriculture. The students are introduced to Agriculture Science in a changing world as well as Biological Science, Plant Science, Animal Science, and ways to create improved plants and animals through technology. The Agriculture Science course also serves as an introductory course to the Biological Sciences. Opportunities are provided for students to participate in the National Future Farmers of America (FFA) and in vocational agriculture projects.

    The National FFA Organization helps develop students' potential for leadership, personal growth, and career success through the education of agriculture. Covina High School students have the chance to raise animals to take to the Orange County Fair each year for judging and can earn money from selling their products to various supporters from the community. FFA members at Covina High School follow the National FFA motto which is, "Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve."
