U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC)
The U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps is one of the largest character development and citizenship programs for youth in the world. Army 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 them self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline.
Our JROTC cadets have the opportunity to participate in several co-curricular activities including:
JROTC Raider Challenge - a competitive program for JROTC Cadets in five different fitness and skill events
Air Rifle Competitions - a marksmanship program that promotes teamwork, self-confidence, and marksmanship skills
Drill Competitions - programs for traditional drill formations including regulation and exhibition pageantry categories
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) - programs include VEX Robotics competitions where cadets create, design, and build a VEX Robotics Cortex or V5 robot, then code, program and prepare robots for competition. During the summer, Cadets also have the opportunity to attend STEM camp that consists of a one-week college residential program where they interact with college level professors and graduate and undergraduate students in various STEM labs.
