njrotc color guardEstablished in July of 2000, the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program motivates students from Lee-Davis and Hanover High Schools to become better citizens. Students participate in drills to develop agility, strength, camaraderie, and their ability to work as a unit. We emphasize character education, student achievement, community service, diversity, and community outreach. Joining our program does not obligate you to any time of service. 

NJROTC cadets participate in a number of outside, or extra-curricular, activities throughout the school year and during the summer months. These opportunities are designed to stimulate learning by hands-on experience and to reinforce classroom instruction. Some of these activities include:

  • School and local activities such as parades, community service projects and events, academic, athletic, drill, marksmanship and orienteering events and competitions.

  • Leadership training of about 1 week during the spring and summer months to include Basic Leadership Training, Leadership Academy, and Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) programs at major universities.

  • Orientation visits (3 to 5 days) to various naval and military bases.

  • Cruises aboard U.S. naval vessels (1 day to 2 weeks) normally conducted during the summer months.

  • The program is free to the cadets and gives a credit towards your high school diploma.
