Get With The Program :)

When someone is talking about JROTC, the first thing most people think of is the military, but only about 10% of cadets actually go into the military after JROTC. It is actually not only a good way to get your health and P.E. credit but there are also many courses for JROTC.
Introduction to ROTC
This class is for any first year cadet. You learn about drill, the way to dress in uniform, the cadet creed, the branches of the Air Force, and so much more! Most of the time, Introduction to ROTC and the Health and P.E. class go hand and hand, so you also get some of the insight from that class. When you join JROTC, you are known as a cadet. You can get promoted very quickly if you’re a hard worker, such as Austin Nance, the freshman Flight Commander for Golf flight (our 6th period class). Promotion tests are usually quick and easy, and if you have good behavior on a regular basis, that helps get you promoted.
Survival Class is a class for sophomores and higher. You learn how to start bonfires, what things are safe and not safe to eat in the wilderness nearby, how to react in a dangerous situation, and more. Survival class is usually the last class of the day and it’s tons of fun.
There are many other classes you can take that tie into the JROTC program.
