The JROTC mission is to motivate young people to become better citizens. Within this context, our goal is to make your student as successful as possible as a high school student and future adult citizen of our country. It is not the intent of JROTC nor is it my mission to recruit your child for future military service.
JROTC is all about having fun with a purpose. The JROTC curriculum is the most dynamic, diverse and challenging of any high school elective course. Your teen will be challenged intellectually, physically and morally. The structure of the U.S. Government, leadership, public speaking, and physical fitness events are but just a few of the areas in which your student will participate. Augmenting the JROTC curriculum are various special-teams in which your child may participate. These include the Raider Team, Drill Team, Color Guard, Leadership Team, Academic Team, a Cyber-Patriot Team, a new Orienteering Team and Rifle Team, community parades and the ability to attend various state/national level competitions. We round out the program with fun activities like a Spring Camping Trip, field trips to various Atlanta metro locations, a JROTC formal ball, and an awards ceremony.
The JROTC curriculum is successful because it is continuously being modernized to adapt to the challenges that our youth face today. The curriculum offers the latest classroom technology and is always available for your review. For those JROTC students and their parents who feel that future military service is a possibility, College ROTC is available with the opportunity to receive a fully-funded 4-year scholarship if qualified. Since inception many of our cadets have received full four-year scholarships. In addition, we had a cadet receive an appointment to the United States Military Academy, and another to the United States Air Force Academy thus, the benefits of this program are enormous. I would be happy to discuss a variety of college options available to your cadet when you are ready.
I have decided to make the success of your child my second career. It is a job that I take seriously because I sincerely believe that all we hold precious in this country lies in the hands of our next generation. It will be a privilege to have your son or daughter in the program.
