Preparing Cadets for the future!
Preparing for the brightest future, TWCP JROTC is pioneering the field of education through our dedication and commitment to our students’ needs. We offer a unique educational experience designed to enhance intellectual growth and promote participatory engagement.
What does JROTC stand for?
JROTC stands for Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. It is a military regulated high school program whose purpose is to educate high school students in leadership roles while making them aware of the benefits of citizenship.
What does the program cost?
There is no cost to enter the program. The course materials, uniforms, supplies, and equipment are issued to the cadets free of charge. There are some things that a cadet may have to pay for, such as a field trip, issued equipment that is lost or damaged, or special equipment for a particular team.
Do Cadets wear uniforms?
Yes. Cadets are required to wear the JROTC uniform once a week on Uniform Day. Cadets earn their rank and awards to put on their uniforms. Also, there are regulations about the personal appearance of cadets, wearing of the uniform
Are there special regulations Cadets must follow?
Yes. There are regulations for cadets that must be maintained: appearance of cadets, wearing of uniforms, and even how to address the other military personnel and cadets.
Can Cadets do other activities outside of JROTC?
JROTC students are involved in everything from varsity sports to band, choir, student government, and other clubs. The program offers several teams (rifle team, drill team, and color guard) that cadets may join in addition to the normal JROTC class activities. The program also offers field trips, summer camps, military balls, community volunteer events, and other group-sponsored activities. These activities are not mandatory for cadets to participate in; the JROTC encourages students to participate in other activities.
How can a student enroll in the program?
If your student wants to be in the JROTC program, they should speak with their school counselor to enroll. They can start JROTC in ANY grade in high school; it is not required that they enroll in ninth grade.
