General Information

The Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program prepares high school students for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. It provides instruction and rewarding opportunities which will benefit the student, community, and nation. JROTC teaches young men and women the kind of self- discipline, self-confidence, and leadership skills that can help them successfully meet the challenges of adulthood. This program is taught by retired Navy, Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard officers. The JROTC curriculum emphasizes citizenship, character development, leadership development and community service. Education classes introduce cadets to the elements of leadership, drill instruction and ceremonies, military customs, uniform inspections, physical fitness training, marksmanship, and military history. Classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by community service activities, drill competition, field trips, marksmanship training, and other extra-curricular activities. Cadets are required to participate in civic service, wear a uniform and dress up weekly. The JROTC program is a strong opportunity not only for those who are interested in a career in the military but for all students. Participation in the JROTC program includes the following benefits:
   1)  Growing into an informed and responsible citizen.
   2)  Character building through training in ethics, leadership, and self-discipline.
   3)  Exploration of possible career and educational opportunities after high school.
   4)  Learning about the elements and structure of national security and the U.S. military.
   5)  Developing strong relationships with fellow cadets.
