The JROTC program is an academic course of instruction which combines the advantage of military leadership training with that of secondary education. JROTC consists of non-combat training and does not obligate a participating student to military service after high school graduation. The objectives of the course are to develop informed and responsible citizens and leadership skills. Instruction in leadership tenets, physical fitness, health, drill and ceremonies, and military organization are taught as a means to develop leadership qualities.

 

Students enrolled in JROTC may have their Physical Education requirement waived. For further information on PE waivers, see the PE section
