Air Force Junior ROTC
The Air Force Junior ROTC mission is "to build better citizens for America." Cadets at each level take classes in Aerospace Science, Leadership Education, Marching Drill, and Physical Fitness. All cadets are required to complete AFJROTC 1, which is the introductory course. After completing AFJROTC 1 students may register every semester for an upper-level AFJROTC course. Each individual student will be registered for AFJROTC 2, 3, 4, up to AFJROTC 8, depending on how many AFJROTC courses the student has taken previously.
AFJROTC I (Introductory course)
Students learn aviation history, citizenship, character, and Air Force traditions.
AFJROTC II - VIII (Upper Level)
These courses vary from semester to semester. All cadets participate in weekly drill and physical fitness training. Upper-level Leadership Education courses cover Life Skills, Financial Management, Communication Skills, Careers, and Management of the Cadet Corps. Upper-level Aerospace Science courses cover Astronomy, the Science of Flight, Survival, and Global and Cultural Studies (which includes in-depth studies of areas such as The Middle East, Europe, Southeast Asia, etc.)
All cadets are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities. These activities include drill teams that compete against other schools and clubs such as Rocketry and Model Airplanes. AFJROTC also sponsors a Venture Crew which allows cadets to participate in rappelling, rock-wall climbs, skeet shooting, and a variety of other outdoor activities. Cadets march in parades and particpate in military balls. Cadets also participate in a variety of community and school service activities.
