It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while fostering in each school a more constructive and disciplined learning environment.
The attributes of self-discipline, teamwork, self-confidence, responsiveness to constituted authority and patriotism are developed. Intergrated-curricular activities include drill teams, rifle teams, athletic competitions, community parades, summer camps, and field trips to Service installations and national historical sites.
Each cadet is issued a uniform, earns leadership promotions and has the opportunity to exercise command. Uniforms, textbooks, and training materials are furnished by the Services at no cost to the student. There is NO military obligation as a result of participation in JROTC.
