The mission of JROTC is to motivate young people to be better citizens. Our program is designed to prepare students as they transition after high school.  This transition process can stem from University, College, Technical School, Military career, or the workforce.  With these tools, students gain a sense of confidence, pride, dignity and focus with their lives.  This program offers more than a Physical Training (PT) credit; in addition, it offers team building, leadership, social etiquette, community service, school service, and service-learning projects.

Class: Leadership Education and Training 1 and 4
(JROTC 1st and 4th Year)

Hello! “I believe my class will provide many opportunities; I hope you will take advantage of them.
I believe there are 3 kinds of cadets in JROTC;

  1. One type takes advantage of the opportunities and makes things happen in JROTC.
  2. Another type watches what happens in JROTC.
  3. The last type wonders what happened in JROTC.

The question is which type will you be?
