Description of JROTC

  • Welcome to the Colonial Forge High School Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) Eagle Battalion! The JROTC Program of Instruction focuses on the development of better citizens by building skills in leadership, citizenship, life success, geography, and wellness in a structured, interactive environment. The Army JROTC program is a cooperative effort by the US Department of Defense (DoD), the US Department of Education, US Army Cadet Command and host institutions to provide secondary school students opportunities for total development. The Colonial Forge High School "Eagle Battalion" was established in the Summer of 2005.

    The Army JROTC program produces successful students and productive adults while fostering a constructive, disciplined learning environment. The program is the centerpiece of the DoD’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 leadership positions, and participation in Integrated Teams. Satisfactory completion of the program may lead to advanced placement credit in Senior ROTC Programs (Collegiate level) or advanced rank in the Armed Forces.  

Announcements

  • The US Army Cadet Command provides thousands of dollars each year to issue our cadets the Army Service Uniform (ASU) coat, pants, tie/necktab, shirt, shoes, some of the uniform accoutrements, and initial alterations. Individual cadets are only asked to pay for/provide those items which are unique to them and which they will keep, such as shoes, T-shirts, black socks, etc., and subsequent uniform alterations should they be required. Expenses for activities outside the standard classroom curriculum are funded through an annual activity fee, payable once at the beginning of each year. The Activity Fee conforms to all Stafford County School regulatory requirements, and was instituted at the request of parents and in lieu of activity fundraisers. The activity fee funds the Military Ball, Awards Ceremony, Battalion apparel (Hoodie/T-shirt) purchase, the Battalion Olympics, leadership labs, field trips, various team and battalion extracurricular events, remaining unfunded uniform accoutrements such as nametags, etc. Students enrolled in the Colonial Forge High School Army JROTC Program are assessed a $100 Activity Fee per year ($90 for first year cadets) and $75 apiece if two or more cadets from the same household. We ask that all activity fees are sent in by the end of October. If parents/guardians have any questions or concerns about the activity fee or uniform items, please contact your son or daughter's JROTC instructor. Payment may be made in cash or by personal check made out to: "CFHS Army JROTC".
