MCJROTC

"As for the event, everything went so smoothly and all the cadets were so helpful and respectful as always. They did an awesome job in helping me clean up once the event was over. As always I truly enjoy having the cadets help out as they are all very dependable. Thank you again for your partnership in this."

MISSION

The mission of the Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program, commonly referred to as “Junior ROTC,”  is to develop courageous, character driven young adults who possess the attributes of personal responsibility and accountability in order to become model citizens in service to the United States. It does not seek any particular commitment to the military.

  • Promote an understanding of the basic elements and requirements for national security.
  • Help form habits of self-discipline.
  • Develop respect for, and an understanding of, the need for constituted authority in a democratic society.
 
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
 
  • Integrity, loyalty and the highest standards of moral and ethical conduct.
  • Equal opportunity for all.
  • Promoting the dignity of the cadets and their families.
  • Open and effective communication at all levels of command.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
 
Wildcat Tunnel Team: We have taken on the task of managing the setup and takedown of the inflatable WildCat Tunnel during our Varsity Football games. We are looking for cadets to join the Tunnel Team and are able to travel to the football games to insure the tunnel is ready for the team to run through before the game and at halftime.  Training and game assignment will occur the second week of school.
