Mission: To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens
REMEMBER THAT ALL CADETS IN LEADERSHIP POSITION MUST CHECK THE EDMODO SITE DAILY.
OVERVIEW: Army JROTC Military Science programs are administered by the Department of Defense. JROTC programs assist cadets (students) with the transition to a college student, a military career, the work force, or some other type of post-secondary institution of higher learning after high school graduation.
BENEFITS OF JROTC: JROTC is a high school program of instruction designed to teach citizenship and leadership skills, while instilling self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. Provides a national curriculum that is used to prepare them for postsecondary JROTC programs at the college level, workforce or entry into the military. Highly successful students have the opportunity of possibly being chosen to attend one of the military academies via scholarship. Cadets who choose to enlist or enter Senior ROTC (college) or the military may receive benefits through higher rank or advancement (more money and faster promotions).
One of JROTC’s main national goals is to have students graduate from high school, attend institutions of higher learning, and pursue meaningful careers particularly in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
