Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, living to serve.

Madison Consolidated High School’s FFA program is rich in tradition, highly decorated in leadership and achievement, and a time-honored legacy for generations.  Started in 1967, the MCHS FFA chapter includes over 100 students today. Course curriculum includes elements of STEM and offers students 4 dual credit class options.  The vision of FFA declares students whose lives are impacted by FFA and agricultural education will achieve academic and personal growth, strengthen American agriculture and provide leadership to build healthy local communities, a strong nation, and a sustainable world.  This is achieved through their mission to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
