JROTC

AFJROTC provides leadership training and an aerospace science program for high school students. High school students who enroll in the AFJROTC program are offered a wide variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities. The program explores history of aviation, principles of aircraft flight and navigation, development of aerospace power and industry, rocketry and space programs. Students are also introduced to military customs and courtesies, citizenship in the United States, survival, health and fitness, basic drill and ceremonies, effective communications, management, human relations and life after high school.


The program also teaches students self-reliance, self-discipline and other characteristics found in good leaders. The program is open to 9th-12th grade. The program is not a recruiting tool for the military services and those students who participate in AFJROTC do not incur any obligation to the Air Force. To reinforce what is learned in the classroom, cadets participate in many outside activities such as field trips to military bases, aerospace museums, civilian airports and other areas related to aerospace education. Cadets also participate in parades, summer leadership schools and have opportunities to fly in Cessna aircraft.

 

Community service is a major part of the cadet experience and helps instill a sense of civic pride and citizenship. Our cadets participate in local community projects such as Color Guard events, staffing during school and community events, and many others. Each school year, RFA JROTC cadets perform thousands of hours of community service.

 

AFJROTC cadets who choose to continue their education may receive special consideration for Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarships.  Many of these scholarships will pay for two, three or four years of tuition, books and fees at numerous universities and colleges and allow cadets to pursue studies in various technical and non-technical majors.


Cadets completing two years of AFJROTC and who continue ROTC in college may waive one term of the AFROTC program.


Students completing three years in AFJROTC may receive credit for a full year of college-level AFROTC.


In addition, cadets electing to enter the military immediately after graduating from high school are eligible to enlist in the services at one to two pay grades higher than other enlistees. Students completing three years in AFJROTC are eligible to enter the Air Force two pay grades higher than other enlistees and are automatically enrolled into the Community College of the Air Force to receive college credit toward their associate college degree.
