Before Cambridge High School
was built, the community agreed that a veterinary science program was an essential piece of the curriculum landscape. The Cambridge Agriscience and Veterinary Education (CAVE) program was started in August 2015, three years after Cambridge High School’s opening. The CAVE building subsequently opened in February 2016; the building houses all the agriculture education classes as well as a barn for future equine science and large animal curriculum. The program continues to grow, and we expect to add more educational pathways and another teacher in the near future.
With the introduction of agriculture education comes the National FFA Organization (formerly known as the Future Farmers of America). The Cambridge FFA chapter, chartered in conjunction with the CAVE program in 2015, already has many accomplishments under its belt, including: 3rd place – state Horse Evaluation team, 3rd place – state Agriculture Education competition, 1st place - state Agricultural Communications competition, and Area 1 (Northwest Georgia) President. Also, this past October, three students traveled to Indianapolis and competed at the National FFA competition. They won the National Championship in the Agricultural Communications Career Development Event (CDE).
