To motivate young people to become better citizens.

While JROTC is given during regular high school hours, it is not taught like a regular class. Sure, you’ll learn the basics--history, government, technology awareness, and current world events – but every lesson is geared towards building leadership and personal skills. You’ll understand how to motivate others while strengthening your own ability to study, take tests and interview for jobs; real skills you can use.

You can deepen your self-respect and confidence with extracurricular activities like:

  • Drill Team
  • Color Guard
  • P.T. Team
  • JLAB

Character. Confidence. Leadership. That’s Army JROTC. While nothing worthwhile is ever easy, uncovering the leadership qualities and personal skills within you pays off in the long run. Both in the present and in the future.

Another boring lecture about doing your homework? Forget it. JROTC gives practical pointers on how to study, take useful lecture notes and get better test results. As your grades go up, you may become more interested in the school and our community, and in turn, become better equipped to meet the challenges of today’s world.

Team work. That’s the feeling in JROTC. All members work together towards the goal. A friendly push when you need it and a pat on the back when you deserve it.

As a JROTC cadet, you are under NO obligation to join the military. JROTC simply utilizes proven military skills to help you develop and improve your self-discipline, confidence and pride in ways not usually offered in school.
