Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps
The JROTC Program goals are to inform high school students the values of citizenship, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment. These goals are met by teaching to specific objectives based on the core values of the United States Navy: HONOR, COURAGE, and COMMITMENT.
The MISSION of the Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) program is to instill in students the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and sense of accomplishment.
The NJROTC curriculum emphasizes citizenship and leadership development, as well as our maritime heritage, the significance of sea power, and naval topics such as the fundamentals of naval operations, seamanship, navigation and meteorology. Classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by community service activities, drill competitions, field meets, participation in academic competitions, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) / CyberPatriot competitions; visits to naval and other activities; marksmanship training; and other military training. For active cadets, the greatest benefit is personal growth, leadership development, and the opportunity to realize untapped potential.
