The Army JROTC Program emphasizes character education, student achievement, wellness, leadership, and diversity. It is a cooperative effort on the part of the military services and host institutions to produce successful students and citizens, while fostering in each school a more constructive and disciplined learning environment. JROTC makes substantial contributions to students, schools, and communities which benefit greatly from its presence.
The mission of Beyer JROTC is to motivate young people to be better citizens. JROTC has arguably, one of the most rigorous and effective career-related leadership curriculums. JROTC’s leadership development curriculum begins with instruction about leadership theory, which teaches Cadets motivational principles, individual and group management practices, decision making skills, and interpersonal relations. As JROTC Cadets progress through the program, they experience opportunities to lead other Cadets. Cadets follow a chain of command, enabling lower classmen to observe the upper classmen lead, teach and make decisions, before assuming the role themselves. Observing leaders in action enables Cadets to experience authentic responsibility for others, which can instill in them genuine concern for the success of the larger group; a key component of effective leadership. The JROTC Program prides itself in staying abreast of the latest educational trends; implementing a continuous improvement plan assists instructional leaders, through curriculum content and co-curricular activities, by effectively:
Improving life skills/Developing personal responsibility
Preparing students beyond high school
Increasing academic performance and test scores
