The U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) is one of the largest character development and citizenship programs for youth in the world. The National Defense Act of 1916 established JROTC programs at public and private educational institutions under the congressionally mandated by Title 10 US Code, Section 2031. NOTE: There is NO OBLIGATION to serve in the military just because students are enrolled in JROTC.
JROTC’s mission, "To Motivate Young People to be Better Citizens," is the guide post for the program’s success.
Physical Education (PE) – Credits for 9th and 10th grade students
As JROTC students (Cadets) progress through the program, they experience opportunities to lead other Cadets. A major component of the JROTC leadership and citizenship program is female Cadets. Female Cadets make up 40% of the Cadet population. 

 

Curriculum: 

Since 2005, the U.S. Army JROTC program has been accredited as a Special Purpose Program by the national accrediting agency known as AdvancED (www.advanc-ed.org). JROTC curriculum provides equitable and challenging academic content and authentic learning experiences for all Cadets. JROTC curriculum includes lessons in leadership, health and wellness, physical fitness, first-aid, Geography, American history and government, communications, emotional intelligence, and life skills.
Cadets participate in a myriad of co-curricular activities to demonstrate their attainment of lesson outcomes. Some of these activities include precision and exhibition military drill competitions, air rifle competitions (optional), Raider Challenge competitions, JROTC Leadership and Academic Bowl (JLAB), Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Camp, and a physical fitness competition known as JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge (JCLC). Cadets who complete 4 years of JROTC co-curricular activities and its challenging curriculum will be more college and/or career ready (see https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/cm/ccical.asp).
