The JROTC program has a lot to offer young men and women who want to get the most out
of their high school years. What you will learn in the program will be useful to you now and in
the future because much of the instruction and experience you will receive isn't available any
other way at the high school level. JROTC gives you the chance to acquire many life skills and leadership abilities, but its primary objective is to develop good citizenship
and patriotism in each student.
The JROTC course of instruction is offered during the regular school day as part of the
school curriculum. You'll be instructed by experienced Army officers and noncommissioned
officers who have a high regard for education and training and enjoy working with young
adults. In JROTC you'll get practical experience in organization and leadership development.
You'll learn what teamwork is all about. You'll learn to think quickly, to be sure of yourself, to
communicate your ideas, and to become self-reliant. You'll also learn military history and the
military role in current events, and you'll develop a full appreciation of our national heritage.
As a JROTC cadet not only will you study such topics as Current Events, World Events.
Student will wear their uniform once a week to class.
JROTC is open to all students enrolled in school.
No. Students who enroll in JROTC don't join the military; there is no military obligation for
enrolling in JROTC. Students take a class for which they receive credit. It's considered a high school elective.
We sponsor a variety of extracurricular activities through JROTC. Among these are drill
teams, honor and color guards, marksmanship teams, and orienteering. Through your participation in
these activities, you'll be a more involved student and community member. Of course, as a
JROTC cadet, you'll also have time to socialize with other cadets. Picnics and a military ball
are just some of the planned activities you'll enjoy.
Yes. A cadet may still join the Coast Guard, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps if they so
choose. The JROTC program will focus mainly on the Army and its role in the world, but
there are many opportunities to learn about any of the other branches of the military and the
jobs that they have to offer.
