Marine Corps JROTC

A STRONG START

We value our partnership with schools across America. MCJROTC is at its essence a Leadership Education Program meant solely to develop character and citizenship. Although a comprehensive learning environment anchored in a military structure is not for all students, there is a body of defendable academic knowledge that clearly articulates the significant benefit to those that choose to participate. Our curriculum was the first to be nationally accredited under CITA/SACS and is directly linked to National Standards. Responding to local challenges, MCJROTC Programs can be implemented in any one of several configurations to include a traditional model, cluster, school within a school, and stand alone academy. In an environment of fiscal challenges, many School Districts find a cooperative relationship attractive allowing them to provide curricular options at a significantly lower cost.

BENEFITS OF MARINE CORPS JROTC PROGRAM

Since its inception in 1916, the JROTC program has been viewed as a strong program that provides youth with much-needed skills in citizenship and leadership. Additionally, numerous studies have shown that students who participate in JROTC programs have better attendance, grades, and graduation rates relative to students who were in general academic programs. Principals and school administrators also maintain positive attitudes toward JROTC because these programs:

  • Motivate students to learn
  • Foster a disciplined and constructive learning environment
  • Instill essential skills like time organization, responsibility, goal setting, and teamwork
 

OUR MISSION

The Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program mission is to instill in students in United States secondary educational institutions the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment.
