Welcome to JROTC!

United States Army Junior ROTC

The U.S. Army’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. Its focus is reflected in its mission statement, “To motivate young people to be better citizens.” It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. The program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community, and nation.

 The JROTC program intends to teach cadets to:

  • Maximize potential for success through learning and self-management
  •  Develop leadership skills
  •  Incorporate principles of mental and physical wellness into behaviors and decisions
  •  Build effective relationships with peers, co-workers, and the community
  • Apply physical and political geography to building global awareness
  • Correlate the rights and responsibilities of citizenship to the purposes of the U.S. government
  • Relate events in U.S. history to choices and responsibilities Americans have today
  • Characterize the role of the military and other national service organizations in building a democracy and maintaining peace in a democratic society.

These Program outcomes, along with linked Core Abilities, describe what JROTC cadets will know and be able to do upon successful completion of the JROTC Program. The JROTC Curriculum is linked to McRel K-12 content standards. McRel is a nationally recognized, private, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving education for all through applied research, product development and service. The JROTC program consists of up to four levels of Leadership instruction. The curriculum is based on the principles of performance-based, learner-centered education. It is intended to engage cadets in active learning, volunteering and service learning initiatives. The course length is four years in a traditional high school (grades 9-12).

  •  Develop leadership potential, while living and working cooperatively with others.
  • Be able to think logically and to communicate effectively with others, both orally and in writing.
