Texas 20122 Air Force Junior ROTC has a vital and important purpose. Our mission is to build better citizens for tomorrow. Entry into AFJROTC incurs no obligation to enter into actual military service. However, completion of our four-year course gives our cadets two promotions upon entry into the enlisted ranks of the Air Force and Army, and one promotion upon entry into the enlisted ranks of the Navy and Marines. Also, we can help with university-level ROTC scholarships for those students who would like to become officers in the US military. All this aside, we are really about teaching teaching values, discipline, responsibility, leadership, and much more. Additionally, we teach aerospace science, leadership, and wellness. We are an elective course, but we also count for PE credit. If you wish to try a class that's a little different, give us a chance. We believe what we teach can be used in any future field of endeavor a young person might enter, not just the military. Cadets can participate in parades, community events, and field trips. We work to develop our students into capable and responsible adults who are "Second to None".

What is ROTC?


LEADERSHIP THAT LASTS A LIFETIME

Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It gives you the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition. Because Army ROTC is an elective, you can participate your freshman and sophomore years without any obligation to join the Army. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be commissioned as an Officer in the Army. At that point, you will have a wide range of interest areas you can specialize in called branches.
