Mojave Agriculture Science Academy at Mojave High School

M.A.S.A is a rigorous applied science program that instructs students about plants, food production, floral design, greenhouse management, animals, natural resources, nutrition and much more. Throughout the program students are also taught a wide variety of employable skills, including but not limited to verbal and written communications skills, leadership skills, and management/technology skills for future internships and possible employment.

Agricultural Science Education uses a three-circle model of instruction. These models are classroom and laboratory instruction, and experiential learning. The successful integration of each of these three components with the handson teaching model results in a strong program that produces well rounded individuals who are prepared to be leaders in agriculture, business, and all professional industries.
