The JROTC program is a cooperative effort on the part of the U.S. Army and the school district to provide secondary school students with the opportunities for total development. The flexibility of the program allows it to bear the scrutiny of professional education and to meet the needs of the community.
The mission of the JROTC is to transform students into citizens who have the ability to succeed and to make great contributions to society. Program curriculum basics target history, government, map reading, first aid, technology awareness and current events.
To motivate and develop young people is the goal of JROTC. To attain this, we combine instruction and extracurricular activities. Cadets are organized into units along military lines and taught by retired military personnel. CCISD JROTC gives cadets the opportunity to develop and improve themselves and uses military skills to teach self-discipline, confidence and pride in a job well done
We are a student run organization. JROTC helps prepare students for leadership roles. As a result, the students are able to think on their own, and can express their own ideas and opinions clearly and concisely, with improved self esteem. In this process, our students gain an understanding of military history, purpose and structure of the U.S. Army JROTC.
