CASE Animal Science

Entry Level: Grade 9

Animal Science is a hands-on lab, activity and project based curriculum to learn the characteristics of animal science. Students will work on projects similar to those that animal science specialists, such as veterinarians, zoologists, or industry personnel face in their respective careers.

*Articulation agreements with: Rutgers University, Delaware Valley University and SUNY Cobleskill

CASE Botanical Sciences

Entry Level: Grade 9

The Botanical Sciences course will expose students to the world of plants, including native plant populations, scientific research and horticultural production. Students will have experiences in various plant science concepts through laboratory based activities, projects, and problems.

*Articulation agreements with: Rutgers University, Mercer County Community College, Delaware Valley University and SUNY Cobleskill

CASE Honors Food Chemistry

Entry Level: Grade 11

Honors Food Chemistry is a specialization course in the CASE Program of Study. Students will complete hands-on activities, projects, and problems that simulate actual concepts and situations found in the food science and safety industry allowing students to build content knowledge and technical skills. investigations.

(If a student is applying to Rutgers University, successful completion of this course will result in 3 college credits.)

CASE Honors Biotechnology

Entry Level: Grade 10

Biotechnology is a course for students with an interest in post-secondary studies in the field of biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. Research and experimental design will be highlighted as students develop and conduct industry appropriate investigations.

*Articulation agreement with: Rutgers University (3 college credits for students attending Rutgers University)

CASE Environmental Science

Entry Level: Grade 10

Students will explore hands-on projects and activities while studying topics such as land use, water quality, stewardship, and environmental agencies. CASE Environmental Science offers many opportunities for talent development for careers in environmental science.

Aquaculture & Wildlife Sciences

Entry Level: Grade 10

This course is designed for students with plans or interests in the area of wildlife or aquaculture science. This class will take an in-depth look at science and management of wildlife and the production of aquaculture and hydroponic crops. Students will have the opportunity to maintain aquaculture and hydroponic units.

Advanced Mechanics and Technology

Entry Level: Grade 11

Advanced Mechanics and Technology builds upon the skills acquired in the earlier mechanics class. Students will receive advanced instruction in shop and laboratory safety, electrical, arc welding, and engine theory. Additional laboratory instruction includes diesel technology, oxyacetylene welding, hydraulics, and multi-position welding. Students will provide or design their own projects, after approval from the instructor. Equipment restoration and repair will occur as a class project.

Equine Science

Entry Level: Grade 9

This course introduces students to the world of equine science and management. The class will focus on safety, history, biology, physiology, functional anatomy, reproduction, genetics, nutrition, management, conformation and selection of horses and their relatives.

Greenhouse Management & Floral Design

Entry Level: Grade 10

This course is designed to prepare students for careers and post-secondary education in controlled environment plant production. Students will recognize and describe various greenhouse structures and design, applying scientific concepts to control the plant microclimate and enhancing plant productive abilities. This course will meet the graduation requirement for fine, visual, or performing art, or as practical art.

*Articulation agreement with: Mercer County Community College


Mechanics and Technology

Entry Level: Grade 10

This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to mechanical systems, including laboratory and equipment safety, electricity, arc welding and cutting, and small engine theory. Students will learn the underlying theory of each concept and then apply it in laboratory experiences.

Nursery Plant Production and Design

Entry Level: Grade 10

This course is designed to prepare students for careers and post-secondary education in nursery plant production, landscape design, and landscape architecture. Students will apply scientific concepts to nursery plant production, including an understanding of plant anatomy and physiology to determine watering and soil needs, fertilizer requirements, plant reproduction technology, and pest control. An emphasis will be placed on mechanical drawing techniques and proper plant use. This course will meet the graduation requirement for fine, visual, or performing art, or as practical art.

*Articulation agreement with: Mercer County Community College


Veterinary Science

Entry Level: Grade 10

The veterinary science course is designed for students with plans or interests in the area of animal health or the medical field. The course strives to provide integration between academics and career skills. By participating in decision-making, problem solving, and career related activities, students are preparing for opportunities in animal health and management.
