Information about JROTC
- JROTC teaches self-discipline, confidence, and pride in a job well done, and it offers you challenges and opportunities.
- This program is not to encourage going into the military, it is to "Motivate young people to be better citizens." (The JROTC motto.) Even if you do want to go into the military, and your JROTC branch is not what you want to go into, it is a step closer to your future and you do not have to go into that branch, you still have many options.
- JROTC is a high school program that any student can start and can usually last up to 4 years. Each student has a chance to achieve leadership and teamwork skills. They also have the chance to participate in extracurricular activities like Raiders, Drill, Color Guard and Honor Guard. Whenever a cadet has done something, in or out of the program, they can receive awards from a SAI(Senior Army Instructor) or AI(Army Instructor).
