Welcome to Lowell's JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) webpage! JROTC is a leadership program aimed to teach students important life skills which include but are not limited to public speaking, critical thinking, financial planning and much more.
Immediately, one might assume that the JROTC program will be recruiting cadets for the military, but we most definitely do not. First of all, we are a group of students striving to become better citizens, using the military system to guide us, NOT recruit us. In other words, we are very friendly and form close bonds with everyone becoming a second family! Here are some additional material we cover in our class...
-Financial Planning (How to manage your budget and savings, how to pay taxes)
-Aspects of U.S. government
-Dealing with Stress and Maintaining Personal Health
Any student, no matter what grade they are in, are welcomed to join this wonderful program. For all freshmen and sophomores that are interested, if you take this class, you will not have to take P.E. as a class, but you will receive P.E. credit!
Outside of the class
Other than class, we give back to the community with numerous volunteer events aiding your college applications. Some events we attend include, but are not limited to
-8th grade nights
-Back to school nights
Every month, JROTC plans fun and themed events after school depending on the month's holidays. For example, in the month of Thanksgiving, we hold a potluck. In the month of Easter, we hold an egg hunt with lots of fun games. People not in JROTC are welcome to attend!

Ever wondered what people do during school with blue formal uniforms? Join JROTC to find out! We are NOT recruiting for the military, and by joining JROTC you are NOT getting drafted to the army by any means. Need some motivation and/or leadership skills? Ever wanted to know how it is like handling a group of people? How to work with other people? Some excuse to perform community service? This might be the place/class for you! Note that just because we call you a cadet does not mean you are a soldier (just a fancy way to refer to JROTC students).
