THE NATIONAL FFA ORGANIZATION
(Formerly known as the Future Farmers of America) The FFA is an organization for those students interested in a career in the industry of agriculture and related technologies. Members conduct and are engaged in activities to increase not only their knowledge of agriculture, but also to increase their abilities in leadership, citizenship, and cooperation. The largest and most active of the student organizations, the Coe-Brown Academy chapter of the FFA has consistently won distinction at regional, state, and national levels. A wide variety of activities keep members busy throughout the school year. Some major projects include greenhouse production, citrus sale, spring and fall interscholastics and FFA State Convention. Members must be concurrently enrolled in an Agricultural Education course.

Membership is required of current students and any student who has been enrolled in at least one Family & Consumer Studies course is invited to belong.
