NJROTC Facts

Naval Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (NJROTC) program is a cooperative effort on the part of the United States Navy and the Pinellas County Schools to provide high school students opportunities for total development. The NJROTC learning experience is intended to be useful to students in any future career, military or civilian. Satisfactory completion of the program (a minimum of two credits) can also lead to advance placement credit in Senior NROTC or advanced pay grade in the military. Cadets incur no military obligation b participation in NJROTC. Completion of four years of NJROTC will allow the student cadet to substitute for the Practical Arts graduation requirement. Completion of three years of NJROTC will allow the student cadet to substitute for one year of the science graduation requirement. NJROTC is a partner with the Traditional Program at Dunedin High. Uniforms, books, and training aids are furnished at no cost to the student. Some of the desired learning outcomes for NJROTC are as follows:

* Appreciation of the ethical values and principles that underlie good citizenship which include integrity, responsibility, and respect for constituted authority

* Development of leadership potential with the ability to live and work cooperatively with others

* Ability to think logically and to communicate effectively both orally and in writing

* Appreciation of the importance of physical fitness in maintaining good health

* Develop self-discipline and pride

* Perform basic military skills which will be beneficial to the cadet and of value to the nation
