JROTC Cadet Creed

I am an Army JROTC cadet.
I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, country, school, and the corps of cadets.
I am loyal and patriotic.
I am the future of the United States of America.
I do not lie, cheat, or steal and will always be accountable for my actions and deeds.
I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism.
I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body.
I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the Constitution and the American way of life.
May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed.

Course Description

The focus of JROTC is reflected in the mission statement, “To Motivate Young People to Be Better Citizens.” It prepares students for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. JROTC is a demanding course; most that make an effort enjoy and thrive on the challenge.

Instruction in JROTC is student centered and performance based. Coursework includes: a Service Learning Project every year; participation in weekly physical fitness, to include completion of the Presidential Physical Fitness Program; health, nutrition, drug awareness, and Red Cross first aid, maps and orienteering; safety and marksmanship; patriotic traditions, US Flag, National Anthem, military drill and ceremony; career planning, command and staff assignments, and opportunities for leadership.

Students are required to wear the JROTC uniform every Wednesday and as directed by the Instructors. The Formal Inspection is the only mandatory event during 1st semester.

JROTC is open to ALL students enrolled at Dunbar High School. Students may take JROTC to meet their graduation requirements or take JROTC as an elective with HOPE. The program at Dunbar High School is organized into units similar to the military and is taught by retired military personnel. JROTC DOES NOT recruit for the military and students that participate in JROTC have NO obligation to the military after high school.
