Mission:“Develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community”
Our Core Values: are grounded in the Air Force core values of integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. The curriculum emphasizes Air Force heritage and traditions, the development of flight, applied flight sciences, cultural studies, aviation history, communication skills, life skills, and leadership.
AFJROTC is a general elective course. Uniform wear, grooming standards in uniform, and community service participation is required. Our daily classroom curriculum can be broken down as follows:
- 40% Aerospace Science study
- 40% Leadership Education study, including mandatory drill practice (marching)
- 20% Physical Fitness & Wellness practice (normally group PT every other Friday)
Level # of Cadets In-Class Academics
ROTC 1 (1st Yr) 75 max Aviation history/ Leadership studies
ROTC 2 (2nd Yr ) 50 max Communication / Aircraft + Navigation
ROTC 3 & 4 (combined) 25 Max Service projects / Career plans/ Space Exploration
As in all organizations, earning a place at the higher levels of the cadet corps are competitive. Each cadet is evaluated weekly on his/her leadership potential. Weekly uniform wear, self-discipline, and community service participation greatly determine who is offered a spot in JROTC next year. We hope and expect that your cadet will participate fully in this unique experience. We look forward to a great year!
