Academics Team




    The academic team is comprised of Cadets who are particularly interested in academic achievement, who are top achievers in Naval Science academics, and who are willing to devote the extra effort and individual study necessary to compete successfully in Area 12 and national competitions.



    The academic team participates in tests and competitions of general naval knowledge against other NJROTC units. The Academic Team Commander reports to the XO and is responsible for matching up cadets in need of tutoring with teachers or other cadets who are willing to tutor them. Additionally, the Academic Team Commander recruits and leads the study groups for academic competitions. 




    The Academic Team consists of four cadets and an alternate team member. This team attends local and regional competitions. The Brain Brawl is modeled after a college bowl type of competition. The format of this competition is the teams compete against each other through presentation of questions and the first to answer the question accurately. Some competitions are done by postal as well, which means a test given locally under a proctor.
