    Carson Long JROTC

    All high school cadets take the JROTC classes where they are motivated to be better citizens. JROTC is a unique class as it teaches a broad range of academic skills such as: study skills, communication, leadership, management, resume writing/career search techniques, and citizenship. It also prepares students by teaching life skills such as: problem solving and time management, race relations, drug and alcohol abuse prevention, personal fitness through proper diet and exercise, map reading, orienteering, and military drill. JROTC also provides several competitive teams.

    A unique approach to leadership training at Carson Long is the Serve-to-Lead Program. All cadets are given time on Wednesdays to participate in Community Service or work on their Service Learning Projects via the JROTC Department. Selfless service is a core value of great leaders throughout history and cadets are given plenty of opportunities to volunteer and help others.
