Parents and Guardians Welcome to the Air Force Junior ROTC (AFJROTC) 793rd Cadet Wing at Tom C. Clark High School

Your daughter and/or son is joining a first-class instructional program with dedicated and experienced instructors who will go the extra mile for each cadet.  We will provide a learning environment that is safe, educational, inspiring, fun, and challenging.  

The mission of AFJROTC is to develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community.  Our core values are:  "Integrity First", "Service Before Self", and "Excellence in all we do".  Our objectives are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill responsibility, character,  self-discipline, and provide instruction in air and space fundamentals.

It is important for everyone to know that AFJROTC is not a military recruiting program and cadets who are enrolled do not have to join any military service following graduation.  However, cadets completing four (4) years of AFJROTC and who subsequently enlist in the armed forces may be eligible to enlist at a higher paygrade.
