About Us

(PLEASE NOTE: This website is currently in development. Some things are missing whilst others aren’t updated.)

The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (otherwise referred to as “JROTC”) is a program dedicated to teaching cadets the value of participating and becoming involved in their community, as well as motivating them to become better citizens so that they can serve their local communities and their country better. By teaching the values of service and dedication, JROTC can transform timid students with no sure path in life to strong and dedicated leaders ready to tackle any barrier in their lives. In addition to the main battalion activities and lessons, the Rocket battalion also offers four active teams for cadets to participate and compete in: the drill team trains cadets in advanced military drill movements and improves their military bearing, the Raider team features intense and advanced physical training that goes far beyond the average P.E. class, the rifle team focuses on a cadet’s precision and skill with advanced air rifles, and the new robotics team offers more technically skilled cadets to showcase their skills in creating and operating robots to perform a group of objectives against others.

The Cadet Creed:

I am an Army Junior ROTC cadet.

I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, country, school, and the Corps of Cadets.

I am loyal and patriotic.

I am the future of the United States of America.

I do not lie, cheat, or steal, and will always be accountable for my actions and deeds.

I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism.

I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body.

I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the Constitution and the American way of life.

May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed.

This creed reflects the promise that all cadets, new and old, establish and must keep with the Corps throughout their entire tenure as a cadet, and reflects the responsibilities and overall behavior that our program expects from all.
