Student Election Judges earn $190 for successfully completing their training, setting up the polling place, and working on Election Day. Consent Form Deadline: Dec 20th 2017

Welcoming US Navy Sailors
Cadets are invited to welcome US Navy Sailors on Christmas morning. This event is set up for current US Navy Sailors as they cannot go home for Christmas. This event will be for them to have a warm welcome within our community. A big part of this welcoming comes from the several volunteers that come to help out with this fantastic event. As stated, this event will be on Christmas morning. Cadets will need to be present at the Christian Liberty Academy (502 Euclid Ave, Arlington Heights, IL 60004) at 0845. Expect this event to run from about an hour to an hour and a half. Please refer to this document if you have any questions. Document

Academic Team
The Academic Team competes in a variety of competitions including tests and jeopardy-style games. Our practices are in the form of Google Forms that are sent out to team members once a week. You don't need any experience to join; you'll learn everything you need from the A-team study guides and practice quizzes.  More details are available on the signup below. Contact C/LT Hanner at ohanner8135@stu.d214.org with any questions. 
 


CHIL Tutoring
Cadets have the opportunity to volunteer with Hands On Suburban Chicago to become a CHiL (Cooper, Holmes, and London) tutor. CHiL tutoring is an after school program meant to give middle schoolers the help they want and/or need. This program is a great way to give back to the community and possibly the very middle school you may have come from. Cadets will be helping students complete their homework, employ organizational skills, and develop strong study habits. 
More details are available on the website.

The 2018 NROTC applications are now open. It's not too early to start (you can update your accomplishments as the year goes on). Go to NROTC to get more info.

Cadet Tutor System
Taking a step towards our unit goal of increasing our unit's average GPA, the unit will be implementing a cadet tutor system. Cadets can make their courses and work-load easier by working along with a personally assigned cadet tutor. Because this will be cadet driven, this also gives cadets an opportunity for Unit Service and valuable experience as a tutor. Appointments can be made as flexible as the student desires.
Please consider quickly filling out the signup for the program: Signup

The Sailors' Creed

I am a United States Sailor. 
I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of
America and I will obey the orders of those appointed over me. 
I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and those who have gone 
before me to defend freedom and democracy around the world. 
I proudly serve my country's Navy combat team with Honor, Courage and 
Commitment. 
I am committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all.



Unit Goals (as selected by the Cadet Staff)

1. Increase participation in community service and teams.

2. Increase the number of promotions.

3. Increase the average GPA.



ACT Preparation Available FREE
 

The NJROTC has paid for a stand-alone program to help cadets with test-taking strategies for ACT/SAT and other standardized tests. There is no cost, but because the motivation for cadets to complete the course seems to be tied to guardian and instructor involvement, there is a notification letter for guardians and instructors will have access to cadet accounts. CADETS WHO COMPLETE THE PREP COURSE WILL EARN THE ACADEMIC RIBBON! Cadets can register for ACT or SAT (not both). We recommend ACT unless you're already taking ACT prep courses and you want to check out the SAT (used mostly by colleges on the East and West coasts). Register at http://jrotccollegeprep.com.


Scholarship Availability:  Scholarship Info available on Scholarship Page. See new info from American Legion.
