Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC)
The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Leadership Education and Training program prepares high school students for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities and privileges as American citizens. This is accomplished by teaching leadership, organizational skills, wellness, goal setting and diversity. Extracurricular activities include color guard, drill team, rifle team competition, service learning projects and participation in local community events.
JROTC classes are taught by veteran military instructors.
JROTC does not obligate any student to enter the military at any level. Neither does the JROTC program recruit students for any military service. However, some students do decide that they will enter the military upon graduation and their JROTC experience is an advantage.
In order to enroll in courses, students must agree to wear the JTORCT uniform once per week and meet JROTC grooming and discipline standards.
