Marine Corps Junior ROTC Overview

    • Develop informed and responsible citizens.
    • Strengthen character and leadership skills.
    • Inform cadets about the role the U.S. Marine Corps has played in American history.
    • Enhance cadet knowledge of world geography.
    • Teach the fundamentals of close-order drill and uniform regulations.
    • Improve physical fitness.
