JROTC - Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps

Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Pacific is proud to offer the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) curriculum at all DoDEA Pacific high schools. JROTC makes many opportunities available to our students. Each year our DoDEA Pacific high schools have many JROTC cadets who earn military academy appointments and college or university Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) scholarships, and many cadets elect to go directly into the military with skills that enable them to earn rank much faster than other recruit.

Each school within DoDEA offers different branch services as part of JROTC. At Zama American High School students have the opportunity to take part in theprogram. Army JROTC

JROTC Programs:

The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) is a program authorized by the National Defense Act of 1916, and Public Law 88-647, 13 October 1964. The original concept of the program was to offer a non-compulsory cadet corps aimed toward making better citizens. Each branch of the military service has established a JROTC program representing the mission, history, traditions, and leadership doctrine of the service to educate high school students. A compilation of JROTC program objectives include the following:

Develop informed and responsible citizens
Develop self-control and restraint
Promote patriotism
Develop leadership
Promote civic duties
Develop strength and character
Promote incentive to live a healthy drug free life
Develop respect and understanding for constituted authority
Provide information on military services

The content of the JROTC curriculum is related to the mission of each branch of the service; however, all of the programs strive for the program objectives above.
