Unit Information



At Gloucester High School the NJROTC program was established in 1981 and currently enrolls over 200 students in grades 9 through 12. At GHS we are the "Navy Dukes" and we place a strong emphasis on Community Service, Academics, Character Development, Physical Training, and Leadership.  We maintain a very active calendar of events throughout the year including programs during summer break.  

During a normal year we travel to a number of Military Bases and museums including various sites in Washington D.C. the US Naval Academy in Annapolis Maryland for football & basketball games, the Blue Angels air show at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, the Battleship Wisconsin at Nauticus in Norfolk, and rock climbing in Richmond.  We usually conduct a "mini-boot camp" for 100 Cadets, participate in 4 - 5 local parades, and participate in a number of JROTC competitions with other JROTC schools throughout Virginia, Washington D.C., & Maryland.
