The JROTC Cadet Creed

I am an Army Junior ROTC Cadet.

I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, country, school and the Corps of Cadets.

I am loyal and patriotic.

I am the future of the United States of America.

I do not lie, cheat or steal and will always be accountable for my actions and deeds.

I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism.

I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body.

I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the Constitution and the American way of life.

May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed.

The Army JROTC Vision

JROTC will provide a quality citizenship, character, and leadership development program while fostering partnerships with communities and educational institutions.

"To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens"

U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) is a congressionally mandated program that focuses on the youth-oriented mission "To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens.” It is one of the largest youth programs in the world with more than 310,000 high school students participating annually while enrolled in over 1,700 secondary educational programs and encompasses a myriad of teaching goals focused on leadership, teamwork, character education, personal responsibility, a sense of accomplishment, and service to the nation. JROTC is not a recruiting tool for any branch of military service. Two of the most important assets for JROTC are the Cadets/students and the nearly 4,000 instructors who lead, guide and mentor their Cadets.
