Air Force Junior ROTC

In the Fall of 2023, Saint John Vianney High School will launch the Air Force Junior ROTC program. AFJROTC is a fully (AdvancED) academically accredited, and inclusive program that is open to all students in the 9th to 12th grades. The mission of this program is "to develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community."

AFJROTC teaches essential skills and reinforces personal traits to help students succeed in life, no matter what type of career they choose following high school. These life skills are based on the Air Force core values of "integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do." Students will learn the important aspects of leadership, followership, adherence to personal appearance and grooming standards, and proper uniform wear.

Members of this program will have the opportunity to participate in activities that will reinforce the lessons they will learn in the classroom and provide them with an opportunity to lead and learn among their peers. These activities are "hands-on" teaching tools and are enjoyable and exciting ways to reinforce the importance of teamwork, service, a positive attitude and image, and hard work. AFJROTC is where a student will not only start to grasp essential life lessons but will truly feel a sense of accomplishment, belonging, and pride that comes with teamwork and success.

If a student joins AFJROTC in high school, there is never any obligation to join the military.
