Drill and ceremony
Every Monday our Cadets will participate in Drill and Ceremony. The purpose of Drill and Ceremony is to teach Cadets the basics of marching individually as well marching in unison with other Cadets as member of a Squad. On these days, Cadets must ensure they wear tennis shoes. Cadets can’t march properly in flip flops or sandals so appropriate foot attire is critical.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Cadets will receive classroom instruction. The curriculum for JROTC is provided by the United States Army Cadet Command and focuses on making Cadets better citizens and leaders in the community. Some of the training topics include: Foundations of the American Political System, Citizens Roles in American Democracy, Leadership Theory and Application, Improving Communication Skills, Nutrition and Physical Fitness Training, Improving Conflict Resolution Skills, Marksmanship, Land Navigation and First Aid just to name a few.
On Wednesdays Cadets will participate in a uniform inspection. On this day, Cadets will be required to wear their uniform to school all day and be inspected for a test grade. Uniforms are provided by the U.S. Army and are issued to Cadets during the first weeks of school. Wearing the uniform of our country is not taken lightly and so we encourage parents to get their Cadet’s uniform dry cleaned every 2 weeks. We want to ensure our Cadets are honoring our country and those currently serving by wearing the uniform correctly and neatly.
Fridays are physical training days for the Cadets. Cadets will come to class and then dress out in physical fitness gear. Principles of good fitness will be taught during these blocks of instruction as well as opportunities for Cadets to play team sports such as basketball, flag football, and kick ball. Cadets will also participate in company physical training led by the company's First Sergeant. Company PT teaches Cadets proper warm ups, cool downs, and exercises to strengthen themselves in and out of class.
