Academies

Ag Science

The Agriculture Academy utilizes a three-part model, including: membership in the National FFA Organization, a Supervised Agricultural Experience, and Classroom/Laboratory Instruction.

The FFA is a dynamic youth organization that changes lives and prepares members for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.

Supervised Agricultural Experiences are individual projects that supplement classroom/laboratory instruction and the FFA. These are student-created projects. Examples can include getting a job, starting your own business, a research project, or everything in between.

The Classroom/laboratory work will be done in the classroom, shop, greenhouse, around the school, and much more.

JROTC

The Brandon High School JROTC "Bulldog Battalion" is committed to running a program of excellence by instilling pride in hard work, a can-do attitude and the satisfaction of being part of a team in all of our Cadets. Our program has enjoyed a long lasting title as an Honor Unit with Distinction. One of the myths often associated with JROTC is that we are a source for recruiting to the military. This is completely a myth in that our mission statement is to "Motivate Young People To Be Better Citizens."

Our program uses national educational accreditation standards and combines challenging outdoor activities with indoor technological resources forcing students to abandon their comfort zones and gain new confidence in their abilities.
