Does joining NJROTC mean I'm in the Military?

Ans. No, the NJROTC program is for leadership purposes in any career goal you may choose.

Do I have to wear the uniform?

Ans. Yes! Our two day a week uniforms are a big part of your academic grade. We wear our uniform on Thursdays and Physical Training gear on Fridays to get each young adult used to what it is like in the real world when it comes to a uniform policy.

What do I get out of the program?

Ans. Our NJROTC program gives you credit for 1 elective, half a social studies, 1 science credit, and if you complete all four years in NJROTC you will receive your gym credit for your entire high school career. Also, anyone who wishes to join the military after high school, you will automatically advance to E-3 in the Navy or E-2 for other branches of service.

Ans. No, but we do encourage you to be a part of at least one of the teams listed above under Varsity Teams.

Do I have to have good grades to join?

Ans. No, but if you might be struggling in any particular course you may stay after school for academic practice and find yourself a tutor to help you there.
