JROTC is a leadership program that is designed to motivate young people to become better citizens.

It was formed when Congress passed the National Defense Act in the year 1916.

Studies show that JROTC helps students get better grades, be more active in school, and perform better on tests, and it decreases disciplinary problems.

Each JROTC program across the nation is different in each of their own ways. Our particular program is very community driven, supported and loved. See this video created by WIWU below about our program:
