    Goals of the JROTC Program:

    COURSE DESCRIPTION: The United States Army’s Junior Reserves Officers Training Corps, or JROTC, is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, personal responsibility, and self discipline.  Its focus is reflected in its mission statement, “TO MOTIVATE YOUNG PEOPLE TO BECOME BETTER CITIZENS.” It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities and privileges as an American citizen.  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.

    Program Goals: The Army JROTC Program intends to teach Cadets to:

    • Appreciate the ethical values and principles that underline good citizenship.
    • Develop leadership potential, while living and working cooperatively with others.
    • Be able to think logically and communicate effectively with others, both orally and in writing.
    • Appreciate the importance of physical fitness in maintaining good health.
    • Understand the importance of high school graduation for a successful future, and learn about college and other advanced education and employment opportunities.
    • Develop mental management abilities.
    • Become familiar with military history as it relates to America’s culture, and understand the history, purpose and structure of the military services.
    • Develop the necessary skills to work effectively as a member of a team
