A Character and Leadership Development Program

   The Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps, or JROTC, emphasizes character education, student achievement, wellness, leadership, citizenship, service to community and diversity. It's focus is reflected in it mission "To motivate young people to be better citizens."


It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while fostering in each school a more constructive and disciplined learning environment. 


   The attributes of self-discipline, teamwork, self-confidence, responsiveness to constituted authority and patriotism are developed. Integrated-curricular activities include drill teams, rifle team, raider team, athletic competitions, community parades, summer camps and field trips to service installations.


Each cadet is issued a uniform, earns leadership promotions and has the opportunity to exercise command. Uniforms, textbooks, and training materials are furnished by the Services at no cost to the student. There is NO military obligation as a result of participation in JROTC.  This year, textbooks will be loaded onto student's Chromebooks to minimize the possibility of loss in transportation.


Its not for everyone just the leaders of tommorow!
