Both AgBiz Basics and classroom visits, described below, are FREE to Pennsylvania schools for the 2021-22 school year.
Ag Biz Basics – Free Online Learning Program
Ag Biz Basics is a fast-paced online program that prepares students to work with a lender and gives them insight on how to position an agricultural business for success. The Ag Biz Basics teacher subscription provides access to four online modules and PDF versions of a workbook, glossary and quizzes (and quiz key). The subscription allows teachers to access the content through a single login and show modules in group setting to the class, virtually or in-person. Teachers have access to the program for the entire school year.
Classroom Visit – In-Person, Virtual or On-Demand
Give your students exposure to industry professionals with AgChoice Farm Credit. AgChoice staff welcomes the opportunity to share our knowledge with your students and meet with your classroom, either in-person or virtually.
