JROTC Doesn’t Fit in a Textbook
Motivating young people to be better citizens is what Junior ROTC is all about. To accomplish this goal, It combines classroom instruction and extracurricular activities oriented on attaining an awareness of the rights, responsibilities, and privileges of citizenship; developing the student's sense of personal , building life skills, and providing leadership opportunities.
What you study in Junior ROTC isn't found in any textbook. It won't be studied by any other students or in any other classrooms. It's not just a teacher telling you what to do either the cadets make the program. Because the subject of JROTC is, YOU the cadet. You are its whole point. It's devoted to your growth as a cadet and as a person; it all depends on how you use it.
Established by Congress in 1916, Army Junior ROTC has demonstrated over the decades that it works. Junior ROTC cadets generally graduate from high school at a higher level than the school as a whole. Principals, parents, and former cadets
consistently endorse the positive impact that Junior ROTC has on the school, the community, and the cadets themselves.
JROTC Prepares You for Life
Junior ROTC is a high school course you take during regular school hours but includes many out-of-classroom activities. We cover the basics of history, government, technology awareness, and current events. Most important we teach leadership skills (Motivating others) and personal skills (how to study, take tests and interview for jobs). Some of the extra curricular activities we offer are Drill Team, Color Guard, Saber Team, Rifle Team and Raider Challenge. Some cadets are even chosen to go to JROTC summer camp where they have the opportunity to train on confidence courses, play team sports, learn land navigation, and water safety techniques.
