ARMY JUNIOR RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING CORPS (JROTC)
Mission “Motivating Young People to Be Better Citizens”
Leadership, Respect, Attitude!!! A Winning Tradition that is the cornerstone of our program.
Junior ROTC is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork and self-discipline. On average, the total number of community service hours this program volunteers are over 2,000 - 3,000 hours. In addition, these hours help our students earn college scholarships. The program prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities and privileges as American citizens. JROTC is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community and nation. Simply stated, the program prepares our cadets for life after high school.
The JROTC program is not set up to recruit and instructors do not request or expect a military commitment of any kind. There is no service obligation. Nonetheless, many cadets find they enjoy military discipline and structure; it brings out their best and allows them to excel. Some students earn appointments to one of the military academies or earn a commission as a Second Lieutenant through college ROTC.
