JROTC cooperative effort on the part of the Army and the host institution to provide secondary students the opportunity for total development. Management of the curriculum is the prerogative of school officials and faculty. Flexibility of the program allows it to bear the scrutiny of professional educators and meet the certain needs of the community.
US Army uniforms are loaned to the cadets free of charge and are normally worn once per week at school. Cadets are given the opportunity to participate (optional) in numerous events during the year such as parades, competitions, camping and civic functions. In addition to normal instruction there are five special teams the the cadet may join. These teams are : Rifle, Color Guard, Adventure, Honor Guard, and Drill Team.
Although the intent of the JROTC program is not to recruit students for the military services after graduation, satisfactory completion of the course can enable cadets to become eligible for opportunities such as : advanced enlisted rank in the US Armed Forces, advanced placement in the college level ROTC program, recommendation for appointment to one of the five US Military Academies, and full or partial scholarships from a variety of military and civilian organizations.
