    The AFJROTC mission is to develop citizens of character, dedicated to serving their nation and community. The goal of the program is to instill in high school cadets the values of: citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.

    NC-955's goals are to instill core values to build good citizens, hard-working followers, and strong involved leaders who set the example for others.

    Cadets wear the provided Air Force uniform on Wednesdays.  We also participate in weekly Physical Fitness activities as part of our regular curriculum.

    New students are always welcome to Air Force Junior ROTC. Students can be involved in our numerous extracurricular activities and field trips should they desire. While there are advantages to taking Junior ROTC should you desire to pursue a career in the military, we are not recruiters. We can refer students should they seek guidance, but our mission is to build leaders and develop citizens. Advanced education is highly recommended if at all attainable.
