Applications to Shepaug Valley High School's new Agriscience program are due January 4th.  The program will open its doors in August at the start of the next school year.  Students will have access to agriscience electives and experiences with animals, plants, and technology. 

The school will be accepting applications from Brookfield, Danbury, New Fairfield, New Milford, Newtown, and Sherman. Students apply from the sending districts in the fall of their 8th grade year.  In addition to an application, prospective students must also send in a transcript, personal essay and three letters of recommendation. 

Students who are enrolled in the agriscience program will be given first priority to the agriscience electives.  Any openings in the agriscience elective courses can be filled with non-program students. 

Construction is underway at the school in the Town of Washington to create room for the new program.  Current students are asked not to enter any of the fenced off construction areas, regardless of whether the gate is open or not.  An area of particular concern is the area behind the school by the pond.  Students may not cross the fenced-off area to get to the parking lot.  While it is a little bit more time consuming, the Principal says all students, especially those participating in after sports practices and competitions, must exit the school through the front entrances/exits.
