ST. JAMES ARMY JROTC HANDBOOK (THE BOOK)

(See below attachments for THE BOOK)


To the Parents, Guardians, and Cadets of the Shark Battalion,

 

It is a pleasure to welcome you as a member to the ST James High School Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program. I would like to congratulate you on selecting the JROTC program; there is truly no better program in high school to prepare you for success as a leader no matter what endeavor you may decide to pursue. It is a program, which will enable you to combine your broadening academic knowledge with the best principles of American leadership, thereby enhancing your value as an individual, a member of our society, and a citizen of this great nation of ours.

 

The high caliber of the students in our battalion, the instructor cadre, and the support of the school administration, faculty, families, and community are what make this program an incredible opportunity for young men and women to achieve their goals. Our mission is to make better citizens out of our cadets by instilling and reinforcing values, ethics, character traits, and leadership skills. Army JROTC is NOT a recruiting effort for military service.

 

This is a 4 year program for which elective credits are awarded toward graduation.  It is not necessary that a student take all 4 years AND the program may be entered starting in the 9th grade and beyond.

 

One of the reasons this program is so exceptional, is because the Cadet Chain of Command (from the squad leader all the way up to the Battalion Commander) is given the freedom and responsibility to run the Battalion. Cadet leaders do everything from instructing drill to teaching some classes. Through this, cadets will learn the value of teamwork as well as the satisfaction of individual accomplishments.

 

While in the classroom, cadets will receive training in citizenship, leadership, first aid, map reading, marksmanship, communicating, and many other subjects. They will gain a greater appreciation for the heritage and responsibilities of American citizenship, and they will develop and practice strategies and skills to improve their relationships, enhance their self-awareness, and function as a member of a team. Outside the formal classroom environment, cadets will learn about and practice leadership, responsibility, self-discipline, decision making, and time management. The cadet’s attitude will be THE determining factor in how enjoyable and beneficial his or her JROTC time will be. The uniform is worn every Wednesday. 

 

The program is scheduled to do many things during the school year. As a member of the Shark Battalion, cadets will be expected to contribute some of their valuable time for the good of the entire battalion. Cadets will also work for the good of the community by helping in service-learning projects and community sponsored events. Our Color Guard performs at civic and school functions, parades, athletic events, and many other activities. Cadets may attend formal events such as: the Tri-Service Sweet Heart Ball; competitions as member of the Drill (Armed/ Unarmed/Exhibition/Color Guard), Rifle, or Adventure teams (Raider Challenge/Field Meet/ Orienteering), JROTC Sports (Softball/Basketball), the JROTC Leadership and Academic teams (JLAB), and the South Carolina JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge (JCLC) Summer Camp.
