What is JROTC?

All students become cadets at SMA High, and all cadets are engaged in the Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corp. JROTC is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, and service to the community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. Its focus is reflected in its mission statement, “to motivate young people to be better citizens.” It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of responsibilities and privileges as American citizens. The JROTC program provides the backbone of the SMA culture and gives each cadet an opportunity to become a leader to his or her own potential and desire. The JROTC program is what makes SMA the special place that it is.
