The Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) Program of Instruction focuses on the development of better citizens by building skills in leadership, citizenship, life success, geography, physical fitness/wellness, first aid, and national security issues in a structured, interactive environment. The Army JROTC program is a cooperative effort on the part of the Department of the Army, the Department of Education, and host institutions to provide secondary school students opportunities for total development. The program produces successful students and productive adults while fostering in each school a more constructive and disciplined learning environment. Army JROTC is the centerpiece of the Department of Defense’s commitment to America’s Promise for Youth through its emphasis on service learning, community service and teen anti-drug efforts. Mastery of these concepts is accomplished through classroom and hands-on instruction, placement of cadets in key leadership positions, and participation in co-curricular Teams. Satisfactory completion of the program can lead to advanced placement credit in ROTC Programs (Collegiate level) or advanced rank in the US Armed Forces.
