Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Curriculum
The AFJROTC program provides leadership training and an aerospace science program for high school students. Secondary school students who enroll in the AFJROTC program are offered a wide variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities. The program explores the historic and scientific aspects of aerospace technology and teaches high school students self-reliance, self-discipline and other characteristics found in good leaders. The program is not an official recruiting tool for the military services and those students who participate in AFJROTC do not incur any obligation to the Air Force. The objectives of the Air Force Junior ROTC program are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship and life skills; promote community service; instill responsibility, character, and self-discipline through education and instruction in air and space fundamentals and the Air Force's core values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do. Students participate in leadership labs where military drill and ceremonies, discipline, problem solving, and organization of the corps are part of the curriculum. Cadets participate in a wellness/physical training program once a week in the issued Air Force physical fitness clothing. The Air Force style uniform is issued to each cadet at no cost. Cadets are required to wear the uniform once a week. All other activities (model club, color guard, drill team, field trips, community service events, etc.) are considered extra-curricular activities and are voluntary. All classes are held at Fargo South High School and students are responsible for their own transportation.
