NBCRSD offers a premier Agriscience program for students in grades 7 - 12.

The NBCRSD Board of Education believes that by offering Northern's Agriscience program as an Interdistrict Public School Choice Program it will increase 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.
