The Middletown Agriculture and Technology program at Middletown High School is now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school year.
The program, which was named Connecticut's Outstanding Agricultural Program by the Connecticut Association of Agricultural Educators, offers instruction in Animal Science, Plant Science, Natural Resources and Agricultural Mechanics. Students enrolled in the program take a full program of academics at Middletown High School, a full-accredited, state of the art public high school with a reputation of academic excellence.
The program is available to high school students from Chester, Clinton, Deep River, Durham, East Hampton, Essex, Guilford, Haddam, Killingworth, Madison, Middlefield, Middletown, Portland, Rocky Hill, Old Saybrook and Westbrook. As part of the state school choice initiative, there are no tuition or transportation costs for students to attend the program at MHS.
A program representative will be available to meet with interested eighth-grade students at Woodrow Wilson Middle School in Middletown and at Thomas Edison Middle School in Meriden Oct. 21-14.
The program will also host an Information Night for interested students and their families on Nov. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Vo-Ag Center at Middletown High. Interested students are encouraged to contract the program office at 860-704-4599 for information and to arrange a personal tour of the facilities at MHS.
