Second, third and fourth year students receive instruction in leadership, citizenship (current events and American government), communication, and first aid. Third and fourth year students are placed in more challenging leadership positions and also serve as assistant instructors. Successful completion of two years of JROTC entitles a student to accelerated promotion (one rank when entering the military).
When Repeating: Emphasis is placed on the practical application of the student’s leadership and responsibilities within the student JROTC organization. Fourth year students plan and execute activities such as the Military Ball, awards ceremonies, inspections, and field trips (such as orienteering, rappelling, staff rides and the JROTC Olympics).
This program emphasizes leadership training and the responsibilities of American citizenship. In addition to government, history and communication classes, students receive first aid, marksmanship, rappelling, physical fitness, and orienteering instruction. Through grades and participation in extra-curricular activities (rifle team, drill team, color guard, concession stands, and parades), students earn awards and promotions to be worn on their uniforms. Wearing the uniform every Thursday with proper haircut and shave are required to successfully complete all LET levels.
