Air Force Junior ROTC
AIR FORCE JUNIOR ROTC 1 – A
ROTC1A
Air Force Junior ROTC programs are designed to develop citizens of character, dedicated to serving their nation
and country. These programs do not serve as a recruiting tool for the military services – there is no obligation
for military service as a result of participating in AFJROTC. However, if a student is thinking about military
service following high school, he/she may receive advanced rank and additional pay upon enlistment. AFJROTC
helps prepare for college ROTC scholarship or military academy appointment. AFJROTC counts for up to 1 and
.5 PE credits or as electives.
Each cadet is expected to maintain U.S. Air Force grooming standards that include limitations on haircuts/clean
shaven, jewelry, body piercings, and tattoos. Additionally, cadets are required to wear Air Force Junior ROTC
uniform throughout the school day one day per week and meet Air Force standards. Uniform wear accounts
for 40% of their grades. Complete sets of uniforms are issued at no cost except for replacement. Students are
responsible for proper cleaning.
The curriculum for these three courses will be divided into Aerospace Sciences (AS), Leadership Education (LE),
and Physical Training (PT). Aerospace Sciences and LE will account for 40 percent each of the contact time
while PT will amount to 20 percent. Both AS and LE will be rotated in accordance with the following curriculum
plan:
2013-2014/Aerospace Sciences (Exploring Space)(AS), Principles of Management (LE), Cadet Wellness Program
(PT).
2014-2015/Cultural Studies (AS), Citizenship Character and Air Force Traditions (LE), Cadet Wellness Program
(PT).
2015-2016/Journey Into Aviation History (AS), Communications Awareness and Leadership (LE), Cadet Wellness
Program (PT).
2016-2017/Science of Flight (AS), Life Skills and Career Opportunities (LE), Cadet Wellness Program (PT).
Air Force Junior ROTC provides a wide variety of co-curricular activities that further classroom activities and
develop leadership and management skills. These activities include field trips, drill competition, orienteering,
model aircraft and rocket, drug and alcohol awareness presentations, and extensive community service. As
students progress through AFJROTC, they are prepared to hold positions of greater responsibility in the cadet
corps.
