ARMY JUNIOR ROTC CADET CREED

Cadet Creed

 The JROTC program is a cooperative effort contractually agreed upon by the US military and the high school as means of providing secondary school students the opportunity for practical application of leadership and citizenship theory. Participation in the program will involve a combination of practical and fundamental skill training in which a cadet will learn how to follow and how to work together as a team. The program provides students with the opportunity to earn up to 4 years of elective instruction that can lead to advanced military rank when entering military service. There is no mandatory obligation attached to a student taking part in this program. One year of JROTC will fulfill the South Carolina diploma requirements for one credit of physical education.
