Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC)
Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) is offered to students fourteen years of age or older. There is no military service obligation for students enrolled in AFJROTC. Through leadership courses, management courses and practical leadership field experience, the AFJROTC program affords high school students opportunities to explore various leadership roles and styles while building appropriate attitudes of responsibility and obligations as American citizens. The AFJROTC unit is structured similar to an operational Air Force unit with all staff functions performed by the students under the supervision of an Air Force Officer and a senior Air Force Non-Commissioned Officer. This practical experience coupled with classroom activities helps the student refine his communicative skills and learn organizational skills in a non-threatening environment.
All enrolled students are required to wear the Air Force JROTC uniform at least once a week as specified by the Aerospace Science Instructor. While wearing the uniform students must meet the Air Force appearance and grooming standards. Any student who dislikes wearing the JROTC uniform and meeting the appearance/grooming standards should not enroll in the program. All students will be screened at the end of each school year and will only be readmitted to the program with the approval of the Aerospace Science Instructors.
The AFJROTC program uses a building block approach with each successive year further developing the skills acquired in the previous year’s course of study. To promote team spirit and provide rewarding competitive experiences, AFJROTC has a select group of students who perform on the Drill Team and Color Guard and represent the school and AFJROTC at local and national competitions. Students who have completed three years of AFJROTC may enter the service at advanced pay grades, may enhance acceptance for scholarships at colleges and universities as well as military academies.
Cadets can enroll in an additional fine arts class (zero hour drill) during the first semester. Our one-week summer camp is designed to enrich each participant’s character through academic pursuits, recreational activities, and leadership training. Successful completion of each activity awards 1 semester of credit.
