The mission of the JROTC program is "To motivate young people to be better citizens."
The JROTC Preparatory Academy provides a learning center for students who wish to have an educational experience focusing on Leadership, Citizenship and Scholarship.
Today JROTC seeks to train students in leadership and motivational skills that will serve them during their school years and throughout their lives.
JROTC prepares students for life, not the military. Both Leadership and Personal skills are the focus of the program.
Students are involved in extracurricular activities, such as the Drill Team, the Color Guard, and for students who choose, Summer Camp where repelling, airborne, sports and land navigation are presented.
JROTC is not a recruitment program; however, many graduating cadets enlist in the military with advanced rank and/or compete successfully for scholarships and military academy appointments.
The military framework of the program is a very effective way to instill goal-directed, success-oriented attitudes and behaviors.
