About Our Program


ms-04-2019The ROTC program is primarily designed to develop leaders through classroom activities, hands-on training, both indoor and outdoor, and many other team building exercises. The student gets the desired and highly sought after leadership skills necessary to succeed both in the corporate world and in the military.

ROTC is a values-based program where basic values such as integrity, personal courage, respect and honor are the foundation upon which we build successful, competent leaders of the future. It is an organization where an individual becomes part of a group, gains confidence, develops and refines leadership attributes, and builds lasting friendships. ROTC also offers rappelling, marksmanship, land navigation and physical training for those who want a challenge and a change from the daily classroom routine.
