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.

About JROTC

The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) is a program put forth by the United States Armed Forces in high schools across the nation that train high school students in Leadership and Military Sciences. The program is entirely run by the cadets, with the assistance of two or more retired servicemen, a senior instructor (officer) and an assistant instructor (enlisted NCO, warrant officer, or commissioned officer of lesser rank). It is a military regulated high school program that educates high school students in leadership, self-confidence, and skills that can be applied to everyday life. The mission of JROTC is to motivate young people to become better American citizens.

Color Guard

The color guard (where the word color here means flag) carries the National Color and other flags appropriate to its position in the chain of command. Typically these include a unit flag, a departmental flag (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, or Coast Guard), or a state flag. In addition to the flag bearers, who are positioned in the center of the color guard, there are two individuals who carry rifles.

The Exhibition Team is a more intricate and varied version of the Drill Team, this team has more freedom in routines and also introduces exhibition rifles into routines. The Exhibition Team can compete in competition and display their skills at school and city events.

Marksmanship

The Rifle Team is an extracurricular activity that competes with different JROTC units locally and nationally in the skill of marksmanship. Using air rifles, cadets compete as a team and as an individual. Participation in the Rifle Team earns a cadet certain merits and distinctions among his peers as well as firearm safety.
