AN HONOR UNIT WITH DISTINCTION 

The U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) is a program offered to high schools that teach students character education, student achievement, wellness, leadership, and diversity. It is a cooperative effort between the U.S. Army and the high schools to produce successful students and citizens while fostering in each school a more constructive and disciplined learning environment. The outcomes of the JROTC program are:​​

  • Act with integrity and personal accountability as they lead others to succeed in a diverse and global workforce

  • Engage civic and social concerns in the community, government, and society

  • Graduate prepared to excel in post-secondary options and career pathways

  • Make decisions that promote positive social, emotional, and physical health

  • Value the role of the military and other service organizations
     

With the school’s support, the JROTC program achieves these outcomes by using a world-class 21st Century, technology-driven, student-centered curriculum. The curriculum consists of education in citizenship, leadership, social and communication skills, physical fitness and wellness, geography, and civics.

The U. S. Army’s 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.
