JROTC discipline is an outward manifestation of mental attitude and state of training, which renders obedience and proper conduct
instinctive under all conditions. It is founded upon respect for and loyalty to properly constituted authority. Do NOT confuse JROTC
discipline with punishment
Mission
Our mission is to:
“Motivate young people to be
better citizens.”
• Note that we’re not here to recruit or promote joining the military.

Q. You say you're not recruiting, but don't many JROTC graduates enter the military? Many cadets find they enjoy military
discipline and structure; it brings out their best and allows them to excel. Some cadets will win appointments to one of the
military academies. Other cadets who enlist in the military will enter at a higher rank allowing them to earn greater pay and
responsibility. However, great the benefits, it is important to note that the JROTC program is not set up to recruit and does
not request or expect a military commitment of any kind.
Q. Can JROTC help students go to college?
We definitely can help. JROTC training improves the ability to study, to take tests, to set goals, and to focus.
Q. Do cadets have to wear uniforms?
Yes, but usually only once a week or when taking part in special ceremonies. The rest of the time, normal clothing is fine.
Q. Are there any fees for uniforms, books, or special equipment?
The JRTOC program supplies mandatory uniforms, books, and all equipment used in the course, free of charge.
Q. Is JROTC as hard as it sounds?
The course is demanding, but most of the students who make an effort really enjoy the challenge and thrive on the hard
work and discipline.
Q. Who teaches JROTC?
Retired Army personnel with years of experience working with young people. Instructors are certified by the Army, but they
are hired by, and work for, the school. Besides having state-of-the-art instruction techniques at their command, JROTC
instructors serve as exceptional role models for maturing teenagers.
Q. Are there any age requirements for JROTC?
There is no firm age requirement, but students must be in a grade above the 8th grade to take JROTC.
Q. Where can I get more information about JROTC?
The guidance counselor at the school or the JROTC instructor will be happy to meet with you and answer any questions.
