Many of you may have heard about Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) but may not really know what it’s all about. Is it a military prep program? Do you have to join the military if you participate in JROTC? What are the advantages of the program? What branches of the military have JROTC programs? Is there a program at my high school? These are all great questions! Lucky for you, we have all of the answers. For more information, please go to High School JROTC.
