Making a Difference

 

What does JROTC stand for?

 JROTC stands for Junior Reserve Officer's 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 I wear a uniform? Are there special regulations I have to follow?

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, and even how to address the other military personnel and cadets. 

 

Can I still do other activities, outside 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, and other group-sponsored activities. These activities are not mandatory for cadets to participate in; the JROTC encourages students to participate in other school activities.  

How can I enroll in the program?

If you want to be in the JROTC, speak with your school counselor to enroll. You can start JROTC in any grade in high school; it is not required that you enroll in ninth grade.

If you have any questions about the JROTC program at TWCP please contact LtCol Nikki Mauery or Sgt. Major Christopher Combs.
