This site‘s purpose is to keep you up to date on recent and upcoming events, inform you on how our Battalion is doing, and provide information from the corps of cadets and contact information. 

The mission of Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) is to motivate young people to be better citizens. This program gives the student an opportunity to develop in many ways. We use military skills to teach self-discipline, confidence, and pride in a job well done. 

This program offers students challenges and opportunities to:
  1. Promote Citizenship
  2. Develop Leadership
  3. Communicate Effectively
  4. Improve Physical Fitness
  5. Provide Incentive to live drug-free
  6. Strengthen Positive Self Motivation
  7. Strengthen Teamwork
  8. Graduate from High School

Army JROTC is active in more than 1,460 high schools worldwide: in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean.

Contrary to popular belief, the program is not designed to steer students toward a military career. Our objective is to teach young people to maximize their potential and talents.

Army JROTC can prepare our young people for life by providing a framework for the qualities (skills, knowledge, and positive attitudes) that will help them succeed. It helps enhance qualities such as courage, candor, competence, commitment, and character. JROTC offers many opportunities for teamwork, advancement, and self-enrichment.

By enrolling in Army JROTC and joining the ranks of millions of other cadets who know & practice the meaning of success, our young people will be taking the first step towards a promising future.
