About US

The Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) program originated as part of the National Defense Act of 1916.  The ROTC program consists of three levels of instruction:  the senior division, the military school's division, and the junior division. 

​Cadets are held to a higher standard than the average student. Both striving for physical and leadership excellence. Cadets step up to motivate, improve, and challenge each other. Our teams push cadets to the epitome of discipline, strength, and fellowship. We engage not only in the classroom but in our community as well. With service learning projects, volunteering at schools, commanding color guards at local events, and much more.

Always conduct ourselves with dignity and pride. Show our pride in our uniforms. Our strengths in our community. And our spirit in our Battalion. We are more than a class we are the EAGLE BATTALION.

the history of jrotc

The Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) program originated as part of the National Defense Act of 1916.  The ROTC program consists of three levels of instruction:  the senior division, the military school's division, and the junior division.  

The JROTC program has changed greatly over the years. Once looked upon primarily as a source of enlisted recruits and officer candidates, it became a citizenship program devoted to the moral, physical and educational uplift of American youth. Although the program retained its military structure and the resultant ability to infuse in its student cadets a sense of discipline and order, it shed most of its early military content.

 The JROTC program is a service to our nation that provides cadets the motivation and skills to remain drug-free, graduate from high school, and become successful citizens. The program works to instill in students in secondary educational institutions the values of citizenship, service to the community and the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.  Junior ROTC cadets may qualify for an advanced placement in the Active or Reserve Components of the Armed Forces. There is no military obligation associated with JROTC.
