NJROTC Program Overview
JUNIOR RESERVE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS
District 214’s NJROTC program strives to help prepare and focus students toward continued education, designed to produce informed and responsible citizens through the study of Naval Science, current events, global issues, as well as foster leadership development and citizenship through student and community service activities.
“This program is a course in leadership, teamwork and citizenship, using studies about the Navy as a common core. Students take the course as an elective and receive a grade that counts towards graduation and their GPA. Only the academic class and a few unit activities are mandatory, but cadets are highly encouraged to participate in the unit’s ‘extra-curricular’ field trips, teams, and events. Students are NOT members of the military, although they wear a regulation military uniform once each week. There is no military obligation, and students have no status within the military. There are definite benefits to those students who are considering a military career, but the program is designed to help students be successful in whichever career or endeavors a student pursues. The unit mission is to help develop more informed and responsible citizens. The goal is to develop young leaders. The focus is to maximize student opportunities and prepare them for success, especially in college.”
