Our Mission Statement
“To motivate young people to be better citizens”
Providing a quality citizenship, character, and leadership development program, while fostering partnerships with communities and educational institutions.
This JROTC program is for students attending Anclote High School. The program provides a meaningful leadership labratory and instruction, beneficial for the student’s development.
Cadets are provided the opportunity to develop individual leadership skills as well as understanding the important leadership concepts for follower-ship. Students are appointed to important leadership positions in the cadet battalion and are monitored and graded on their performance. The JROTC program may be the “leadership basic training” for many of our students prior to the independence that comes after graduating high school whether it be college, establishing careers, the military, or any other path of life.
Uniform Every Tuesday
Grades are based on weekly uniform inspections. We require cadets to wear the JROTC uniform one day (all day) each week for inspection, normally on Tuesday. Cadets must conform to specified standards of haircuts and hairstyles in order to receive a passing grade on uniform inspections. Male cadets are required to keep their hair neatly trimmed above the eyebrows and tapered around the sides and back (no bowl cuts or mohawks); their hair is not to be dyed. When in uniform, female cadets will keep their hair off the shoulders and above the eyebrows. Females, other than earrings, as well as males may not wear any body piercing items at all.
