Junior ROTC Program – Marine Corps (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps)

What is it?

The (Junior) Reserve Officers' Training Corps is a military-regulated program that offers high school students leadership experiences, motivating them to become better citizens.  

"The concept of Junior ROTC is very much about preparing students for making good choices and getting prepared for what is next after high school," said Major Paul Wilson, a retired Marine who has led the Holmes program for nine years. "Even if they only do one year, they have the desire to perform, they will become more organized, more capable, and more mentally aware for a better GPA
