The JROTC program prepares Cadets for leadership roles, giving practical lessons that help them develop in to active and engaged learners and leaders. The program promotes academic achievement and leadership development, providing Cadets with skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.
The Academy’s JROTC program at Army and Navy Academy consists of four levels of Leadership Education Training (LET) instruction. The JROTC curriculum is based on the principles of performance-based, learner-centered education, and is linked to the McREL (instructional leadership resource) national standards. Every lesson and assessment actively engages students’ higher-order thinking and skill performance. All Levels of LET are also required to do a “Service Learning Project.”
The fourth-year Cadets are responsible for the daily Cadet administration and perform as commanders and staff officers. They act as assistant instructors in some subject areas for other JROTC classes. They continue to develop their leadership skills and plan special unit events such as the military ball and the annual awards banquet as well as several Leadership camps.
