Due to Governor Reeves’ Executive Order that began April 3, 2020 through Monday, April 20, 2020, which ordered a Shelter in Place for our state, we are adjusting our meal deliveries. Starting on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, we will begin delivering 5 breakfast and 5 lunch meals. We will now deliver 5 meals every Wednesday. Our school office hours will also change to Wednesday from 8:30-12:30. We will continue to answer your calls, provide counseling services, and provide tech services(by appointment). Teachers are still available via email for any of your instructional questions.
We have set up an email for your questions if you are not sure who to contact. We will route your questions to the appropriate person. The email is firstname.lastname@example.org You may also leave a voice mail at 601-582-4741 if you don’t have an email. We will be happy to respond to your questions.
Remember that the Forrest County Board of Supervisors has made each community center in the county a WIFI hotspot. You are able to sit in the parking lot and have access to WIFI since the community centers are closed. Jeff Martin Auction is also providing WIFI in the front parking lot for those who need access. C-Spire and T-Mobile are offering additional services. Please click on the Resources link for more information.
Please keep our healthcare workers in your thoughts and prayers as they are providing an extraordinary service to our community. Thank you for all of your support and cooperation at this time. I cannot say enough about how well our students, parents, and staff have handled this unprecedented situation.
Please continue to follow any state and/or local orders as well as the CDC’s COVID-19 guidance to keep your families safe and healthy.

Welcome to FCAHS
Forrest County Agricultural High School was established in 1911 by an act of the Mississippi Legislation as an agricultural boarding school located on 320 acres of donated land. Students from across Mississippi, the United States, and several foreign countries have been educated here. In 1996, the school was listed as a Mississippi landmark by the historical society.
Today, FCAHS serves students in grades 9 through 12. We provide all of the offerings of a larger metropolitan city school in a small educational setting. It is our belief that all students can meet high standards for rigorous academic work. With that in mind, we offer advanced academic coursework as well as advisory services that support students at all levels of academic progress.
