Locust Trace AgriScience Center is the newest career and technical high school in Lexington, Kentucky with energy and environment being key factors in the facility design and agriculture being the educational focus. Locust Trace features spacious classrooms with adjoining labs, 6.5 acres for gardening, a state-of-the-art greenhouse with an aquaculture area for raising fish, a soaring auditorium with a garage door for bringing in livestock and machinery, an expansive equine barn and arena and an on-site veterinary clinic. Students study in one of seven pathways.
The school is designed to be net-zero in energy through the use of photovoltaic solar panels and net-zero in waste disposal through the utilization of constructed wetlands. The school is also minimally hooked up to water municipalities. All rain water is collected from the classroom building and the equine barn/arena to be utilized for all crop irrigation and livestock watering. An on-site well has been accessed to back up the rain water collection system in case of a drought. Sustainable agriculture is a focus in all programs.
