"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." -- Helen Keller
AFJROTC students adhere to higher standards than might normally be found among the rest of the student body due to visibility within the school. Students are expected to live with honor, following our Honor Code...“I will not lie, cheat, or steal nor tolerate those who do.” Successful students eagerly conform to these high, yet attainable standards and influence those around them.
AFJROTC operates with an organizational framework similar to the U.S. Air Force. This provides a proven structure for students to develop leadership, followership and program management skills. Students are recognized for performance through awards, ribbons, and other opportunities to further their understanding of leadership and organizational dynamics. There are also JROTC-specific scholarships that our students are eligible to compete for!
AFJROTC is not a disciplinary or rehabilitation program, but a class that emphasizes professional and courteous conduct rooted in common values.
*** AFJROTC is not a recruiting source for the military. Students have no military or government service obligation. In fact, most of our students do not enter the military or the aerospace industry. ***
There are, however, benefits for students seeking appointment to a service academy, Air Force college ROTC scholarships, or enlistment in the military services, that are not available to the general student body.
Being a cadet also has near-term benefits. Earning 1½ AFJROTC credits completes the Chandler Unified School District Physical Education (PE) graduation requirement.
There are optional events, teams, clubs, camps, conferences, and trips only AFJROTC students may earn the opportunity to participate in. AFJROTC assists with funding or completely funds many of these. Examples include:
- Field Day Competitions With Other JROTC Units- Air Rifle Marksmanship- Aviation Club- Flight Training Scholarships
- Model Rocket Competitions
- Orienteering Competitions
- Cadet Leadership Camp
- Formal Dances & Dinners
- National-level Drill Team Competitions
- Military Base VisitsRising Seniors - You ready to run the show? If you're a cadet staff member, you need to enroll in AS 400 Management of the Cadet Corps.
