The Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) is a Federal program sponsored by the United States Armed Forces in high schools across the United States. The program was originally created as part of the National Defense Act of 1916 and later expanded under the 1964 ROTC Vitalization Act.

Reserve Officer Training Corps. This is a college program that is not to be confused with JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) which is found in many high schools nationwide.
ROTC is a program which consists of military instruction by laboratory, lecture, and physical training. Found on many campus' nationwide. Lower division classes (Freshman or MSI and Sophomore or MSII) are open to anyone. Upper division classes are reserved for contracted cadets.
ROTC specifically trains studets/cadets to become 2nd Lieutenants in the United States Army. ROTC offers 4 year to 2 year scholarships which pays full tuition or up to approximately $20,000 a year for educational costs. In addition, $900 per year for books and a monthly stipend is given.
ROTC gives college students/cadet the ability to experience the Army while maintaining a normal college life. There is no obligation until a cadet chooses to contract and recieve scholarship. Obligation is 8 years in the ANRG, Reserves or Active duty.
I became an army officer through the ROTC program at Cal Poly.
ROTC classes are great leadership courses to take if you need more units!
Acronym for Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, which has the purpose of "motivating young people to become better citizens". It is arguably one of the best programs offered in high school. It is taught by retired army instructors (both enlisted and commissioned). Students who are enrolled in the program are called cadets. The typical weekly schedule for a JROTC program is: Drill and ceremony once a week, physical training once a week, uniform inspection once a week, and academics twice a week. Aside from the minimum standard of attending class, there are also optional teams available for the more involved and dedicated cadets to be a part of which include drill team, raider team, rifle team, color guard, honor guard, etc. JROTC units also attend annual camping trips in the fall, spring, and summer. The class is harder to fail then it is to pass with an A since the book work is relatively easy and limited.more...
JROTC is horribly portrayed as a war machine used to brain wash high school students by anti-war protesters, claiming that it promotes violence, sexism, racism, etc. they also make false claims that the majority of JROTC cadets enlist in the armed forces upon graduation from high school when, in fact, the lot of them go on to further education and become leaders in the civilian and/or military field.
In my opinion, the only downside to the program is the fact that ANYONE can join it, therefore allowing fuck offs who are only in it to get an "easy A" to make the prog...

Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. Proof that the government is dehumanizing people at a young and influential age, and molding them into tools of the government.
"Hey, wanna join the Jrotc?"
"No thank you. I value my freedom of expression."
A terribly corrupt and poorly undertaken attempt by the United States Military to indoctrinate and shelter teenagers too young to enlist. Classes cost more than the average high school class, teach racism and homophobia, have a generally sub-par curriculum, and promote violence.
Remember when two Arizona J.R.O.T.C. members dressed in fatigues and killed nine Buddhist monks after looting their temple?
Bill: Hey! I wanna join the J.R.O.T.C.!
Chris: I can't be friends with you anymore.
