About the Ellis Clark Regional Agriscience and Technology Program

The Ellis Clark Regional Agriscience and Technology Program is designed to provide students a balanced combination of technical agricultural knowledge, supervised agricultural work experience, leadership training and FFA activities. Our mission is to successfully prepare students to either continue their education in college or to enter directly into an agricultural career.

Agriscience and Technology is an elective program within the total curriculum of Nonnewaug High School. Students taking this program are scheduled for a minimum of 320 minutes per week in grades 10, 11 & 12. Up to 2.5 credits are awarded for grades 10, 11 & 12 while grade 9 meets for 225 minutes per week and students are awarded one credit. Each student must fulfill all requirements of Nonnewaug High School. All students are encouraged to select classes that are challenging and that will prepare the student for future needs. Proper course selection during his/her high school career will allow the student to prepare for a four year college, two year college, or to secure employment upon graduation from high school. All school activities are available to students enrolled in agriscience and technology such as sports, drama, band, student council, and other student organizations.
