Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) Information
Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) programs are offered at Atholton (Army), Howard (Army), and Oakland Mills (Air Force) high schools. A student who wishes to participate in JROTC, but does not attend one of the schools that offers JROTC, may apply for participation. Each school has a limited number of spaces available. To apply for participation in the 2019 -2020 school year, students must contact a JROTC official before January 11, 2019, to schedule an interview. Only students who are interviewed during this designated period will be considered for enrollment.
