The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is a popular federally-funded program on many college campuses. The Junior ROTC is its high school iteration. Follow this link to see if your school participates in this program. If you’re interested in joining the military, JROTC might be for you.
What is JROTC?
- Unlike the ROTC, JROTC members don’t have to join the military when they graduate.
- It’s usually offered as a class in your school but is listed as an activity on applications.
What Will You Do as a JROTC Member?
- ROTC members learn practical military skills. Dependent on the branch, these can include drill formations, first aid (Army), naval science (Navy), and more.
- Part of this includes physical fitness. Thus, taking a JROTC class can sometimes count as a Physical Education credit.
Is JROTC Right for Me?
- If you plan on joining the armed forces, JROTC is a great way to start early and learn leadership skills along the way.
- You can enlist as a higher rank if you stay in the program for long enough.
- You can meet people, stay in shape, and become eligible for scholarships.
- While JROTC and ROTC are distinct, and you don’t have to join ROTC in college, many JROTC members do. The ROTC is more demanding, but very rewarding. Check out this article for information about ROTC.
