Nelson Ag Academy Pathways

What is a pathway?  It is a tool to help students explore various careers in agriculture and help them setup a plan of study that will help them achieve their career goals.  Each of the pathways listed below will give you the opportunity to view the careers in that pathway area, then shows the recommended courses to help you get the knowledge and skills needed for that particular career.  I feel the pathways are the best way to prepare you for a great career in agriculture, but these are only suggestions!  Take the courses in each of the pathways you feel will help prepare you!  Please feel free to contact me (or your online Ag Teacher) to discuss careers and a course pathway that’s best for you.  You can contact me at 406-783-8552.  Good Luck and we look forward to having you n the academy!
