The mission of the Chandler High School AFJROTC program is to "Develop citizens of character, dedicated to serving their nation and community." Visit the Corps website here.
AFJROTC stands for Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. JROTC is a citizenship program offered at 894 high schools worldwide that prepares young Americans to become outstanding citizens.
If a student enrolls in AFJROTC in high school, there is never a military obligation. AFJROTC emphasizes “life skills” which will help students long after high school. AFJROTC will help prepare your student for success following high school.
Our cadets learn the type of discipline, leadership, and social graces that allow them to acquire a finely-tuned body and mind. They are taught valuable time and stress management skills as well as note taking and study/test taking techniques. Completing the AFJROTC program is no easy task; but, for those who have the drive and the passion to succeed, AFJROTC is the gateway to building a successful career through diligent preparation that must start in high school.
Since 2002, Chandler High School AFJROTC has been developing high quality citizens of character who are dedicated to serving their school, community, and nation. Some of the best and brightest Chandler High students have completed the AFJROTC program while earning their high school diplomas. These graduates have gone on to become successful, productive community members, military members, and college students. In fact, we are very proud of our 100% AFJROTC Senior class graduation rate.
Today, this long-standing tradition continues at Chandler High School. AFJROTC offers students a chance to challenge themselves more than they ever thought possible.
Our commitment is first and foremost to helping cadets succeed as students. In the corps, cadets gain access to resources that can help them excel academically.Leadership
Through the Corps of Cadets, students have the opportunity to excel as a leader through participation in a premier values-based program. All programs in the Corps are cadet initiated, planned, led, executed, and documented, providing them the opportunity to operate and learn at the “ownership” level.
The AFJROTC wellness program is designed to develop leaders of character who are physically and mentally tough by engaging cadets in activities that promote and enhance a healthy life style, physical fitness, movement behavior, and psychomotor performance.
Successful completion of three semesters of AFJROTC fulfills the Chandler High School graduation requirement for PE (physical education).
The shared experiences of cadets creates lifelong bonds. AFJROTC introduces students to a diverse section of the student body, perhaps many of whom they will remain in contact with long after graduation.
