Title: Jrotc aerospace science 1 

Unit Credit: 1 

Grade Levels: 9 – 12

Prerequisite: None

The first level of the AFJROTC instructional program is an introductory course for the entering AFJROTC student. Academic material introduces cadets to the AFJROTC program and focuses on military traditions, citizenship, the U.S. government, wellness, health, fitness, personal accountability, and Phase I Introduction to College and Career Path Development. Citizenship principles are reinforced through community service projects. The concepts of good “followership” are fostered as a foundation for leadership. A highlight of this curriculum is a hot air balloon project, where cadets design, construct, and launch their own hot air balloons. Students receive a physical education unit upon completion of this course. 


Title: JROTC Aerospace Science 2

Unit Credit: 1

Grade Levels: 10 – 12 

Prerequisite: Instructor approval and AS 1

Career Cluster: Law, Public Safety, Government, Security, and Military Science 

The second year of Aerospace Science places further emphasis on the AFJROTC program mission, to “develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community.” Academic material covers improving communication, increased emphasis on leadership, the science of flight, and Phase II of College and Career Path Development. Leadership principles come to life as cadets actively employ basic leadership principles as they serve in lower echelon leadership positions within the Cadet Wing. Many second year cadets become instructors in drill and ceremonies and freshman cadet leadership training. Others may assume staff and leadership positions as required within the cadet organizational structure. Organizational planning, time management, and acceptance of responsibility are stressed as cadets assume increased leadership roles. NOTE: AS2 and AS3 courses will have an area of emphasis determined by the instructors and class rotation. The areas included (but not limited to) are as follows: Cultural Studies, Science of Flight, Space, Survival, Career Development and Military Drill.

The third level of the AFJROTC program further develops positive citizenship attributes by providing life skills students will need upon graduation. Academic material takes the student through basic life skills ranging from financial management, to exploring career and associated educational opportunities. Cadets will complete Phase III of College and Career Path Development where they explore college campus life, research job application techniques, and explore long-term career selection. An honors course is offered to select cadre leadership cadets, where more intense academic study is combined with extensive management and leadership responsibilities. Third year cadets assume mid-tier management and leadership positions in the cadet corps, and their performance as leaders represents a larger portion of their grade. Students may complete a country research project, and a team management business project as part of their final grade. NOTE: AS2 and AS3 courses will have an area of emphasis determined by the instructors and class rotation. The areas included (but not limited to) are as follows: Cultural Studies, Science of Flight, Space, Survival, Career Development and Military Drill.
