The purpose of JROTC is "To motivate young people to be better citizens." I strive to accomplish this by teaching our cadets to be respectful, self-sufficient, and responsible men and women. Our classroom instruction focuses primarily on the life skills necessary to be successful after high school.
This program does not recruit for the armed forces and there is no obligation to enlist! We do provide an overview of the different branches of the US Military and some of the benefits of serving. We also partner with school guidance offices to assist with college admissions processes, scholarship applications, and admissions into the US Service Academies (West Point, Annapolis, the Air Force Academy, and the Coast Guard Academy).
