Wednesday, December 14, 2 p.m., virtual event

A virtual information session is being held on Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. for students who are interested in participating in HCPSS’ Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) Academy. The event will be held via Google Meet using this code: No registration is required.

JROTC is a citizenship, character, and leadership development program for high school students. It is a cooperative effort between Howard County Public School System, the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force. JROTC instruction prepares students in grades 9-12 for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges, as American citizens through rigorous instruction and hands-on activities.

HCPSS offers JROTC at three high schools – Atholton High School, Howard High School, and Oakland Mills High School. A student who wishes to participate in the JROTC program, but does not attend one of those three schools, may apply to the JROTC program at Atholton High School, Howard High School, and/or Oakland Mills High School. Each school has a limited number of spaces available for students who apply.
