WHY I SHOULD JOIN
JROTC is a citizenship course and leadership lab whose mission is to develop citizens of character, dedicated to serving their nation and community.
JROTC is NOT a military pathway and there is NO service obligation upon graduation. The class is focused on helping students become the best versions of themselves and to give them the skills they need to be successful in today's workforce.
AFJROTC cadets who choose to continue their education may receive special consideration for Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarships. Many of these scholarships will pay for two, three, or four years of tuition, books, and fees at numerous universities and colleges and allow cadets to pursue studies in various technical and non-technical majors.
Cadets who elect to enter the military immediately after graduating from high school are eligible to enlist in the services at one to two pay grades higher than other enlistees. Students completing three years in Air Force JROTC may be eligible to enter the Air Force two pay grades higher than other enlistees and are automatically enrolled into the Community College of the Air Force to receive college credit toward their associate’s degree.
