The purposes of the Leadership Candidate Course (LCC) are twofold: to train the Officer Corps for the next school year and to identify which Cadets will be promoted to various positions in the Corps of Cadets.
Throughout LCC, candidates are evaluated on a number of performance objectives. Cadets are evaluated on:
- Written Exams
- Oral Exams
- Personal Appearance
- Ability to Lead Drill
The highlight of LCC is the camp held at Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California. This is an excellent opportunity for future leaders, combining leadership with team building and adventure-type training. All training is conducted by members of the JROTC staff and U.S. Marines.
The final phase of LCC is leader selection, where the Selection Committee meets to decide who best fits each position. Committee members include the Academy President and Chief of Staff, Commandant, JROTC Instructors, Faculty Leaders, and Academic Counselors. Leaders are selected not only based on their past performance, but also for their potential for growth.
Congratulations to those selected for leadership positions in the upcoming school year!
