It is a cooperative effort between the Army and school to produce successful students and citizens, while fostering a more constructive and disciplined learning environment. The outcomes of the JROTC program are:

With the school’s support, the JROTC program achieves these outcomes by using a world-class 21st Century, technology driven, student centered curriculum. The curriculum consists of education in citizenship, leadership, social and communication skills, physical fitness and wellness, geography, and civics.
