Bryan High FFA Chapter

Our Unique Academy Approach

Bryan has adopted a unique pocket academy structure.  Our career academies are small, personalized learning communities within Bryan High School that involve career based and service learning projects.  Teachers from other subject areas work with the academy instructors to integrate curriculum and concepts into core academic subjects.  Students are grouped together for specific classes throughout the day, which promotes a family-like atmosphere resulting in close student-teacher ties that ultimately impacts achievement.  Our program follows the National Career Academy Coalition’s National Standards of Practice.

Urban Agriculture and Food Science Academy

Bryan High School Urban AgBryan is currently the only Omaha Public School to have an agricultural program and boasts the largest FFA chapter in the state of Nebraska.  In this academy, students utilize knowledge of both urban and traditional agriculture to be innovators in their field and positive members in the community.  Agricultural themes are incorporated into their core coursework such as plant and animal science and food production.  Students participate in various competitions and regularly attend field trips and conferences across the state.  Vegetable and fruit gardens are managed by the students along with other landscaping projects throughout the campus.  

Through your generous donations, Bryan will be able to build a state of the art green house and add essential classroom and laboratory space to their campus. This will enable students to be engaged in the growing process throughout the school year and further enhance their research and understanding of Urban Agriculture and Food and Animal Science. Thank you for considering a contribution. If you have additional questions, please contact Toba Cohen-Dunning, Executive Director of the Omaha Public Schools Foundation, 531-299-0419.
