About the JROTC Leadership Program
The JROTC/Leadership and Education Training (LET) program prepares Cadets for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. The program provides instruction and opportunities to benefit the student, community, and nation.
The JROTC program at Army and Navy Academy consists of four levels of Leadership Education Training (LET) instruction. Each LET level must total 180 academic hours or the number of academic hours required to meet school requirements for 1.0 credit in courses such as math or English. Army and Navy Academy awards credit toward graduation for each year of the JROTC program.
The curriculum is linked to the McREL (instructional leadership resource) national standards. Every lesson and assessment actively engages students in higher-order thinking and skill performance.
The program of instruction provides the flexibility to link the standards for elective credit and additional credit in subject areas such as physical education, health, wellness, life management skills, freshman orientation, government, civics, practical and performing arts, careers and so forth.
The main goal of all JROTC learning experiences is the Cadet’s success. The JROTC curriculum is based on the principles of performance-based, learner-centered education.
As a result, Cadets:
- Learn skills they can use, not outlines of information or isolated facts.
- Know the performance expectations from the beginning.
- Engage as active partners in the learning process.
- Document accomplishments and competence.
- Learn how to learn.
