The Northern Burlington County Regional School District (NBCRD) Board of Education is pleased to provide the following information for all interested in our Inter-district Public School Choice Program (IPSC). The information that follows is designed to assist interested families in the navigation of the application process for the 2020-2021 school year.
It is a well recognized fact that the Northern Burlington County Regional School District offers a premier Agriscience program for students in grades 7 - 12. In fact, more recently, Northern's nationally award winning FFA program celebrated its 50th year of existence, becoming only the sixth FFA Chapter charted in New Jersey to commemorate that milestone. It is the belief of the Northern Burlington County Regional School District Board of Education that offering Northern's Agriscience program as an Inter-district Public School Choice Program increases and expands the exposure for potential future farmers to the Agriscience community and to the science, business, and technology of farming in the 21st century. In fact, there are over 300 career areas associated with the agriculture, food and natural resources industry which account for more that 17% of all occupations in the United States!
