JROTC is a leadership training course that is designed to teach students how to become better citizens.  We help parents instill a strong sense of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage in their children.  JROTC is a great way to foster friendships, gain confidence, encourage self-improvement, and learn valuable life skills.

Our program is unique in that we use experiential learning(hands-on) methods combined with traditional instruction.  Students are issued uniforms and are required to maintain specified grooming standards and participate in physical fitness training.  Students can earn rank and awards based on participation and demonstrated leadership abilities.  Students can also earn the opportunity to participate in adventure trips, summer camp, and/or compete on one of our JROTC teams (Raider, Drill, Rifle, and Orienteering).
