To build better citizens of character
dedicated to serving their nation and community.
AFJROTC is an elective
program offering students the chance to become a better citizen and a
leader--confident, self-reliant and self-disciplined. Students explore the
civilian, industrial and military aspects of aerospace. College bound students
may receive an Air Force Academy nomination or an Air Force ROTC scholarship, if
qualified. Or, they may receive college credit for the first year of an Air
Force ROTC four-year college program. Career-minded students may be able to
enter the Air Force at a pay higher than most enlistees.
